Kallikrein-related peptidase 4

KLK4, kallikrein 4, PstS, Arm I, prostase
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. This gene is one of the fifteen kallikrein subfamily members located in a cluster on chromosome 19. In some tissues its expression is hormonally regulated. The expression pattern of a similar mouse protein in murine developing teeth supports a role for the protein in the degradation of enamel proteins. Alternate splice variants for this gene have been described, but their biological validity has not been determined. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008] (from NCBI)

Gatesy et al., Riverside, United States. In Mol Phylogenet Evol, Dec 2015
UNASSIGNED: Previous studies have reported inactivated copies of six enamel-related genes (AMBN, AMEL, AMTN, ENAM, KLK4, MMP20) and one dentin-related gene (DSPP) in one or more toothless vertebrates and/or vertebrates with enamelless teeth, thereby providing evidence that these genes are enamel or tooth-specific with respect to their critical functions that are maintained by natural selection.

Sublingual immunization with the phosphate binding-protein (PstS) reduces oral colonization by Streptococcus mutans.
Ferreira et al., São Paulo, Brazil. In Mol Oral Microbiol, Nov 2015
Streptococcus mutans is the etiological agent of dental caries, and previous studies have demonstrated that deletion of the gene encoding PstS, the substrate-binding component of the phosphate uptake system (Pst), reduced the adherence of the bacteria to abiotic surfaces.

Why does enamel in Klk4-null mice break above the dentino-enamel junction?
Hu et al., Ann Arbor, United States. In Cells Tissues Organs, 2010
The breakage of enamel near the dentino-enamel junction in Klk4-null mice is not due to a failure of odontoblasts to express Klk4, but it relates to a progressive hypomineralization of enamel with depth.
