The Bioaim Human KLK14 ELISA kit is a solid phase sandwich ELISA (enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay) for the quantitative measurement of KLK14 in Human serum, plasma and cell culture media. An antibody specific for Human KLK14 was coated on a 96-well plate. Standards and samples are added to the wells and any KLK14 present binds to the immobilized antibody. The wells are washed and biotinylated anti-Human KLK14 antibody is added. After washing away unbound biotinylated antibody, HRP-conjugated streptavidin is added to the wells. The wells are again washed and TMB substrate solution is added, which produces a blue color in direct proportion to the amount of KLK14 present in the initial sample. The Stop Solution changes the color from blue to yellow, and the microwell absorbances are read at 450 nm.Research Area Angiogenesis; Coagulation;
kallikrein related peptidase 14(KLK14) Background: Human tissue kallikreins refer to a group of secreted serine proteases that are encoded by homologous genes clustering on chromosome 19q13.3-4. As a member of this family, human tissue Kallikrein 14 (hKLK14) is present in many tissues, with high levels in breast, skin, prostate, and brain.. Its enzymatic activity has been shown to be mainly trypsin-like. However, its physiological substrates and functions are still unclear. Several studies have suggested that hKLK14 may have clinical utility as a biomarker for cancer of the breast, ovary, and prostate. In addition, it may be the initiator of a kallikrein proteolytic cascade responsible for the degradation of the adhesion structures in the stratum corneum.
