ENZYME entry: EC

Accepted Name
Kallikrein 8.
Alternative Name(s)
Serine protease 19.
Tumor-associated differentially expressed gene 14.
Reaction catalysed
Cleavage of amide substrates following the basic amino acids Arg or Lys at the P1 position, with a preference for Arg over Lys
  • Activated by removal of an N-terminal prepropeptide.
  • The highest amidolytic activity is observed using Boc-Val-Pro- Arg-|-7-amido-4-methylcoumarin, which is a substrate of alpha- thrombin.
  • Substrates lacking basic amino acids in the P1 position are not cleaved.
  • Degrades casein, fibronectin, gelatin, collagen type IV, fibrinogen, and high-molecular-mass kininogen and is associated with diseases such as ovarian cancer and Alzheimer's disease.
  • Belongs to peptidase family S1A.
