SPINK2 Antibody: Human serine proteinase inhibitor Kazal-type 2 (SPINK2) is required for maintaining normal spermatogenesis and potentially regulates serine protease-mediated apoptosis in male germ cells. It contains a typical kazal domain composed by six cysteine residues forming three disulfide bridges. SPINK2 functions as a trypsin/acrosin inhibitor and is synthesized mainly in the testis and seminal vesicle where its activity is engaged in fertility. SPINK2 plays a role in the pathogenesis of hereditary and chronic pancreatitis.
