Western blot shows lysates of HeLa human cervical epithelial carcinoma cell line and COLO 205 human colorectal adenocarcinoma cell line. PVDF membrane was probed with 0.5 µg/mL of Rabbit Anti-Human SPINK5 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF8515) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Rabbit IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF008). A specific band was detected for SPINK5 at approximately 150 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.

LEKTI (Lympho-epithelial Kazal-type-related inhibitor; also SPINK5, Serine Protease Inhibitor Kazal-type 5) is a 150 kDa precursor protein that is cleaved into the following 2 chains: Hemofiltrate peptide HF6478 and Hemofiltrate peptide HF7665. LEKTI is a multidomain serine protease inhibitor that contains 15 Kazal-like inhibitory domains. It may play a role in skin and hair morphogenesis and anti-inflammatory and/or antimicrobial protection of mucous epithelia. Mutations may result in Netherton syndrome, a disorder characterized by ichthyosis, defective cornification, and atopy. It contains fifteen Kazal-like domains. Mature human SPINK5 shares 60% aa sequence identity with mouse SPINK5.
