Recombinant Human Kallikrein 4/Prostase/EMSP1 (Catalog # 1719-SE) under non-reducing conditions only
Measured by its ability to neutralize Recombinant Human Kallikrein 4/Prostase/EMSP1 (1.0 µg/mL, Catalog # 1719‑SE) cleavage of the fluorogenic peptide substrate Boc-VPR-AMC (100 µM, Catalog # ES011). The Neutralization Dose (ND50) is typically 2.9 µg/mL.
Please Note: Optimal dilutions should be determined by each laboratory for each application. General Protocols are available in the Technical Information section on our website.
Kallikrein 4/Prostase/EMSP1 was detected in immersion fixed paraffin-embedded sections of human prostate using Mouse Anti-Human Kallikrein 4/Prostase/EMSP1 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB35661) at 15 µg/mL overnight at 4 °C. Before incubation with the primary antibody, tissue was subjected to heat-induced epitope retrieval using Antigen Retrieval Reagent-Basic (Catalog # CTS013). Tissue was stained using the Anti-Mouse HRP-DAB Cell & Tissue Staining Kit (brown; Catalog # CTS002) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue). Specific staining was localized to nuclei of epithelial cells. View our protocol for Chromogenic IHC Staining of Paraffin-embedded Tissue Sections.

Background: Kallikrein 4/Prostase/EMSP1
Kallikrein 4 (KLK4), also known as prostase or EMSP1 (enamel matrix serine protease 1), is a serine protease of the human tissue kallikrein gene family (1). Among normal tissues, human KLK4 is specifically expressed in the prostate (2). It is over-expressed in prostate cancer and this expression is regulated by hormones including androgens, esterogen and progesterone (3). Recombinant human KLK4 readily activates pro-KLK3/PSA and pro-urokinase type plasminogen activator (uPA), indicating it may initiate events involving PSA and uPA in either normal or abnormal processes (4). KLK4 may have additional roles such as functioning as one of the two major enamel proteases identified that process enamel matrix proteins (5). In addition to being a secreted enzyme, it is also a nuclear protein (3, 6). The deduced amino acid sequence of human KLK4 consists of a signal peptide, a short pro region and a mature/active enzyme.
