anti-KLK4 antibody

anti-KLK4 antibody for Western blot and Human

Cancer antibody; Cell Biology and Cellular Response antibody; Signaling Transduction antibody


Product Description Rabbit Polyclonal antibody recognizes KLK4
Tested Reactivity Hu
Tested Application WB
Specificity This antibody recognizes the geneproduct hk4 of human KLK4 (alsoknown as KLK-L1), one of the manykallikrein serine proteases associatedwith carcinogenesis. KLK4 is upregulatedby androgens and progestinsand has been associated with prostateand breast cancers and possibly withother cancers.

Gene Symbol KLK4
Gene Full Name kallikrein-related peptidase 4
Background 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. Several transcript variants encoding different proteins have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Dec 2014]
Function Involved in enamel formation. [UniProt]
Research Area Cancer antibody; Cell Biology and Cellular Response antibody; Signaling Transduction antibody
Calculated MW 27 kDa
PTM N-glycosylated. The N-glycan structures are of complex diantennary or triantennary type, which may be further modified with up to 2 sialic acid residues.
