KLK1

KLK1

A gene on chromosome 19q13.3 that encodes a serine protease with diverse physiological functions, which may also have a role in carcinogenesis. KLK1 releases the vasoactive peptide Lys-bradykinin from low molecular weight kininogen.

Further, the Company believes that study results support the determination of a dose range to normalize KLK1 levels in CKD patients for its upcoming Phase II study work.
The study also demonstrated a dose range which the company believes will restore normal KLK1 levels in CKD patients.
Our published study showed that IL-17 activates the kallikrein-kinin system (KKS) through the induction of renal expression of kallikrein 1 (Klk1) during systemic fungal infection [17].
Previous animal studies have suggested that altered expression of the KLK1 gene, which results in the transcription/translation of the serine protease kallikrein, may be related to AKI.

The team also exposed nerve cells isolated from mice to KLK1 or KLK6 in the laboratory, and found the enzymes promoted nerve-cell loss.
All of KLK3 was deleted in individual S8, along with KLK15 and KLK1 (upstream of KLK3), and KLK2 (downstream of KLK3) (see Appendix 5 in the online Data Supplement).
