Ovasin, PRSS19, TADG14, NRPN, NP, Kallikrein 8
(Neuropsin/Ovasin) 2 EC 220.127.116.11, Kallikrein-8, Neuropsin, EC 3.4.21 61,
is a serine protease which degrades various proteins such as casein,
fibrinogen, kininogen, fibronectin and collagen type IV. Kallikrein-8 takes
part in the formation and maturation of orphan and small synaptic boutons in
the Schaffer-collateral pathway, regulates Schaffer-collateral long-term
potentiation in the hippocampus and is essential for memory acquisition and
synaptic plasticity. Kallikrein-8 participates in the secondary phase of
pathogenesis following spinal cord injury and also takes part in skin
desquamation and keratinocyte proliferation.
KLK8 Mouse Recombinant produced in Sf9 is a single, glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 240 amino acids (29-260) and having a molecular mass of 26.5kDa (Molecular size on SDS-PAGE will appear at approximately 28-40kDa). The KLK8 is fused to an 8 amino acid His-Tag at C-terminus and purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
