Human Kallikrein 8 / KLK-8 Protein (Human Kallikrein 8, His Tag) Gln 29 - Gly 260 (Accession # AAH40887) was produced in human 293 cells (HEK293) at ACROBiosystems.

Molecular Characterization

Human Kallikrein 8, His Tag is fused with a polyhistidine tag at the C-terminus, and has a calculated MW of 25.8 kDa. The predicted N-terminus is Gln 29. The reducing (R) protein migrates as 38 kDa in SDS-PAGE due to glycosylation.

Enzymatic Activity

Pre-activation is required for enzymatic assays. Please dilute Human Kallikrein 8 to 200 µg/mL in activation buffer (50 mM Tris, pH 8.0), and then dilute Lysyl-Endopeptidase to a final concentration of 0.4 mU/mL in activation buffer. Combine equal volume of diluted KLK8 and Lysyl-Endopeptidase together and incubate at 37 ℃ for 30 minutes. Please note that the optimal treatment time may need to be determined empirically.


Less than 1.0 EU per μg by the LAL method.


>95% as determined by SDS-PAGE.


Lyophilized from 0.22 μm filtered solution in 50 mM Tris, 150 mM NaCl, pH 8.0. Normally Mannitol or Trehalose are added as protectants before lyophilization.

Human Kallikrein 8, His Tag on SDS-PAGE under reducing (R) condition. The gel was stained overnight with Coomassie Blue. The purity of the protein is greater than 95%.



Kallikrein-8 (KLK8) is also known as Neuropsin (NP or NRPN), Ovasin, Serine protease 19 (PRSS19), Tumor-associated differentially expressed gene 14 protein (TADG-14), which belongs to the peptidase S1 family and Kallikrein subfamily. KLK8 contains 1 peptidase S1 domain. KLK8 is pH dependence protein and the optimum pH is 8.5, and the protein is active from pH 7-10. KLK8 is expressed at high levels in serum, ascites fluid and tumor cytosol of advanced stage ovarian cancer patients and may serve as a marker of ovarian cancer. KLK8 cleavage of amide substrates following the basic amino acids Arg or Lys at the P1 position, with a preference for Arg over Lys, and the catalytic activity of KLK8 is inhibited by a range of serine protease inhibitors including antipain, aprotinin, leupeptin, benzamidine and soybean trypsin inhibitor.
