KLK-6Protein Product Information
Synonym:Bssp, Klk7, PRSS18, PRSS9, SP59, Hk6
Protein Construction:A DNA sequence encoding the human KLK6 isoform 1 (Q92876-1) (Met 1-Lys 244), was fused with a polyhistidine tag at the C-terminus.
Expressed Host:Human Cells
Form & Shipping:In general, recombinant proteins are provided as lyophilized powder which are shipped at ambient temperature.
Bulk packages of recombinant proteins are provided as frozen liquid. They are shipped out with blue ice unless customers require otherwise.
KLK-6Protein QC Testing
Purity:> 95 % as determined by SDS-PAGE
Bio-Activity:Measured by its ability to cleave the fluorogenic peptide substrate Boc-QARAMC, R&D Systems, Catalog # ES014.
The specific activity is > 250 pmols/min/μg.
Endotoxin:< 1.0 EU per μg of the protein as determined by the LAL method

Molecule Mass:The secreted recombinant human KLK6 (pro form) consists of 239 amino acids and has a predicted molecular mass of 26.6 kDa. The apparent molecular mass of rhKLK6 is approximately 10&25 kDa in SDS-PAGE under reducing conditions due to autolysis.
Formulation:Lyophilized from sterile PBS, pH 7.4
1. Normally 5 % - 8 % trehalose and mannitol are added as protectants before lyophilization. Specific concentrations are included in the hardcopy of COA.
2. Please contact us for any concerns or special requirements.
KLK-6Protein Usage Guide
Storage:Store it under sterile conditions at -20℃ to -80℃. It is recommended that the protein be aliquoted for optimal storage. Avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles.
Reconstitution:A hardcopy of COA with reconstitution instruction is sent along with the products. Please refer to it for detailed information.

KLK6 (kallikrein-related peptidase 6), also known as Klk7, belongs to the peptidase S1 family, Kallikrein subfamily. Kallikreins are a subgroup of serine proteases having diverse physiological functions. Growing evidence suggests that many kallikreins are implicated in carcinogenesis and some have potential as novel cancer and other disease biomarkers. KLK6 is a serine protease which exhibits a preference for Arg over Lys in the substrate P1 position and for Ser or Pro in the P2 position. Klk7 shows activity against amyloid precursor protein, myelin basic protein, gelatin, casein and extracellular matrix proteins such as fibronectin, laminin, vitronectin and collagen. KLK6 degrades alpha-synuclein and prevents its polymerization, indicating that KLK6 may be involved in the pathogenesis of Parkinson disease and other synucleinopathies. Klk7 may be involved in regulation of axon outgrowth following spinal cord injury. Tumor cells treated with a neutralizing KLK6 antibody migrate less than control cells, suggesting a role in invasion and metastasis.
