Characterization of Spink6 in mouse skin: the conserved inhibitor of kallikrein-related peptidases is reduced by barrier injury.
Kiel, Germany. In J Invest Dermatol, 2014
Recombinant Spink6 efficiently inhibited mouse Klk5 and human KLK2, KLK4, KLK5, KLK6, KLK7, KLK12, KLK13, and KLK14, whereas human KLK1 and KLK8 were not inhibited.
Human kallikrein 14 (KLK14) expression in salivary gland tumors.
London, Canada. In Int J Biol Markers, 2010
The differences in the levels of KLK14 suggest that KLKs may aid in the differential diagnosis of salivary gland tumors. The coexpression of KLKs suggests their possible involvement in an enzymatic pathway activated in salivary gland.
Human tissue kallikrein gene family: applications in cancer.
Toronto, Canada. In Cancer Lett, 2005
For example, hK4, hK5, hK6, hK7, hK8, hK10, hK11, hK13 and hK14 are emerging biomarkers for ovarian, breast, prostate and testicular cancer.
