Human CellExp KLK-8 / Kallikrein-8, human recombinant protein
KLK8, Kallikrein-8, Neuropsin, Ovasin, NRPN, PRSS19, TADG14, NP, hK8
|Calculated MW||This protein is fused with polyhistidine tag at the C-terminus, and has a calculated MW of 25.8 kDa. The predicted N-terminus is Gln 29. DTT-reduced Protein migrates as 38 kDa in SDS-PAGE due to glycosylation.|

|Results||>500 pmoles / min / µg|
|Sequence||Gln 29 – Gly 260|
|Target/Specificity||KLK-8 / Kallikrein-8|
|Application Notes||Centrifuge the vial prior to opening. Reconstitute in PBS, pH 7.4. Do not vortex.|
|Storage||-20°C; Lyophilized from 0.22 µm filtered solution in 50 mM Tris, 150 mM NaCl, pH 8.0. Normally Mannitol or Trehalose are added as protectants before lyophilization.|

Kallikrein-8 (KLK8) is also known as Neuropsin (NP or NRPN), Ovasin, Serine protease 19 (PRSS19), Tumor-associated differentially expressed gene 14 protein (TADG-14), which belongs to the peptidase S1 family and Kallikrein subfamily. KLK8 contains 1 peptidase S1 domain. KLK8 is pH dependence protein and the optimum pH is 8.5, and the protein is active from pH 7-10. KLK8 is expressed at high levels in serum, ascites fluid and tumor cytosol of advanced stage ovarian cancer patients and may serve as a marker of ovarian cancer. KLK8 cleavage of amide substrates following the basic amino acids Arg or Lys at the P1 position, with a preference for Arg over Lys, and the catalytic activity of KLK8 is inhibited by a range of serine protease inhibitors including antipain, aprotinin, leupeptin, benzamidine and soybean trypsin inhibitor.
