KLK13 is mainly expressed in prostate, breast, testis and salivary gland. KLK13 may be involved in the pathogenesis and / or progression of breast and ovary cancers, and is regarded as a novel cancer biomarker. In addition, KLK13 interacts and forms complexes with several serum protease inhibitors, such as alpha2-macroglobulin, and its expression is regulated by steroid hormones.
