KLK9

KLK9

A gene on chromosome 19q13.41 that encodes a serine protease of unknown function which is expressed in skin, thymus, trachea, cerebellum and spinal cord; it may have prognostic value in early breast and ovarian cancer.

These genes include angiogenic/vascular cell growth factors (VEGF, PLGF, ADM, ANGPT2, TGFB2), vasoactive serine proteases (KLK2, KLK6, KLK9, KLK22), and vascular endothelial receptors (IL17R, BDKRB1, ENG, GNA13).
KLK9 has previously been shown to be expressed in the brain, liver, lung, small intestine, spinal cord, thymus, trachea, prostate, testis, and breast at the mRNA level (29) and primarily expressed in the testis and seminal vesicle at the protein level (30).
The secretion of KLK9 into biological fluids has not been studied to date.
Previously, several other kallikreins, including KLK4, KLK5, KLK6, KLK7, KLK8, KLK9, KLK10, KLK11, KLK14, and KLK15, have been associated with various forms of malignancy and especially cancers of the ovary, breast, prostate, and testis [reviewed in Refs.
More recently, KLK9 has been shown to be a marker of favorable prognosis for the same malignancy (66).
