KLK11, KLK13, and KLK14 were measured as previously described (18, 19) (see Supplemental Data section in the online Data Supplement).
The KLK8 mRNAs were considered alone or as a ratio with the KLK5, KLK6, KLK7, KLK10, KLK11, KLK13, or KLK14 mRNA in the same samples.
KLK5, KLK13, and KLK14 may also contribute to tumor cell invasion via degradation of extracellular matrix components (37-39).
KLK13 was found at high concentrations in the esophagus and tonsil.
KLK13 was found at highest concentrations in CVF, followed by seminal plasma and saliva.
KLK13 was previously found in the breast, esophagus, kidney, prostate, salivary gland, skin, testis, thyroid, tonsil, trachea, ureter, and lung, with highest concentrations seen in esophagus and tonsil (36).
For example, we found that KLK6 and KLK13 have a splice variant with 3'-coding exon 3 extension by ~100 by (close to the length of the retained intron III in the genes examined here).
A noteworthy pattern related to the hormonal regulation is that the centromeric and telomeric groups of kallikreins (KLK1 to -4 and KLK13 to -15) are up-regulated mainly by androgens, whereas the central group is up-regulated mainly by estrogens.
