Product Summary

The Quantikine® Human Granzyme B Immunoassay is a 3.5 hour solid-phase ELISA designed to measure human Granzyme B in culture supernates. It contains NS0-expressed recombinant human Granzyme B and antibodies raised against the recombinant protein. Results obtained using natural human Granzyme B showed linear curves that were parallel to the standard curves obtained using the Quantikine® kit standards. These results indicate that this kit can be used to determine relative mass values for natural human Granzyme B


Intra-Assay Precision (Precision within an assay) Three samples of known concentration were tested twenty times on one plate to assess intra-assay precision
Inter-Assay Precision (Precision between assays) Three samples of known concentration were tested in twenty separate assays to assess inter-assay precision. Assays were performed by at least three technicians

Background: Granzyme B

Granzyme B is a member of the granzyme family of serine proteases found specifically in granules of cytotoxic T lymphocytes (CTL) and natural killer (NK) cells (1, 2). Granzyme B plays an essential role in granule-mediated apoptosis utilizing the substrates in this pathway, such as Caspase 3, Caspase 8 and Bid (3, 4). Recent research indicates expanded Granzyme B functionality to include extracellular roles along with its classical pro-apoptotic function. It has been found that Granzyme B is an important mediator of skin injury, repair and inflammation (4) through extracellular substrates including Laminin, VE-Cadherin, Fibronectin and the proteoglycans Aggrecan (3) and Decorin (4). 

As one of the five Granzymes (A, B, H, K and M) identified in the human genome, Granzyme B (32kDa) (5) is the most widely researched in terms of its biological function and its utility in health and disease (4). It is synthesized as a precursor (247 residues) with a signal peptide (residues 1-18), a pro-peptide (residues 19-20), and a mature chain (residues 21-247) (6-8). Once inside granules, Granzyme B is fully processed into the mature chain and becomes an active protease when the pro-peptide, Gly-Glu is removed from the N-terminus by cleavage with Cathepsin C (9). The protease activity of Granzyme B is tightly controlled by Serpin B9/ Protease Inhibitor 9 (9). The amino acid sequence of human Granzyme B is 71%, 69%, and 68% identical to its canine, rat, and mouse counterparts, respectively. 
Granzymes have been shown to modulate inflammation, and Granzyme B plasma levels have been found higher with atopic dermatitis and psoriasis when compared to healthy controls. This is in contrast to Granzyme A plasma levels which remain unchanged (10). Serum from patients with Crohn's disease have significantly higher Granzyme B levels than controls (11).
