Technical Data
Kallikrein 5 (Kallikrein-5, KLK5, Kallikrein-like Protein 2, KLKL2, KLK-L2, Kallikrein-related Peptidase 5, Stratum Corneum Tryptic Enzyme, SCTE, UNQ570/PRO1132)
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. KLK5 expression is up-regulated by estrogens and progestins. The protein is secreted and may be involved in desquamation in the epidermis.

Suitable for use in ELISA and Western Blot. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilution:
ELISA: 1:1,000
Western Blot: 1:100-1:500
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

Storage and Stability:
May be stored at 4C for short-term only. Aliquot to avoid repeated freezing and thawing. Store at -20C. Aliquots are stable for at least 12 months. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap.
