Human Kallikrein 7/KLK7 HEK293 Overexpression Lysate: Product Information
This Human Kallikrein 7/KLK7 overexpression lysate was created in HEK293 Cells and intented for use as a Western blot (WB) positive control. Purification of Kallikrein 7/KLK7 protein (Cat: 10416-H08H) from the overexpression lysate was verified.
A DNA sequence encoding the human KLK7 (NP_005037.1) extracellular domain (Met 1-Arg 253) was expressed, with a C-terminal polyhistidine tag.
The secreted recombinant human KLK7 comprises 242 amino acids and has a predicted molecular mass of 26.7 kDa. As a result of glycosylation, the apparent molecular mass of rh KLK7 is approximately 30-33 kDa in SDS-PAGE under reducing conditions.
Human Kallikrein 7/KLK7 HEK293 Overexpression Lysate: Usage Guide
Cell lysate was prepared by homogenization of the over-expressed cells in ice-cold modified RIPA Lysis Buffer with cocktail of protease inhibitors (Sigma). Cell debris was removed by centrifugation. Protein concentration was determined by Bradford assay (Bio-Rad protein assay, Microplate Standard assay). The cell lysate was boiled for 5 min in 1 x SDS loading buffer (50 mM Tris-HCl pH 6.8, 12.5% glycerol, 1% sodium dodecylsulfate, 0.01% bromophenol blue) containing 5% b-mercaptoethanol, and lyophilized.
1. Centrifuge the tube for a few seconds and ensure the pellet at the bottom of the tube.
2. Re-dissolve the pellet using 200μL pure water and boil for 2-5 min.
1 X Sample Buffer (1 X modified RIPA buffer+1 X SDS loading buffer).
Stability & Storage
Store at 4℃ for up to twelve months from date of receipt. After re-dissolution, aliquot and store at -80℃ for up to twelve months. Avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles.
Western Blot (WB) Optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.

Kallikrein 7/KLK7 Background Information
Kallikrein-7, also known as kallikrein-related peptidase 7, Stratum corneum chymotryptic enzyme, Serine protease 6, KLK7, and PRSS6, is a secreted protein which belongs to thepeptidase S1 family and Kallikrein subfamily. Members of the Kallikrein family are involved in various malignancies such as prostate (PSA, KLK2, KLK15), ovarian (KLK4, KLK5, KLK6, KLK8, KLK1), and breast cancer (KLK1, KLK13, KLK14). Kallikrein-7 / KLK7 appears to be increased in ovarian cancer and higher KLK7 expression in ovarian cancer tissue is associated with poorer prognosis of ovarian cancer patients. Kallikrein-7 / KLK7 is abundantly expressed in the skin and is expressed by keratinocytes in the epidermis. Kallikrein-7 / KLK7 is up-regulated in ovarian carcinoma, especially late-stage serous carcinoma, compared with normal ovaries and benign adenomas (at the protein level). It was significantly associated with shorter overall survival (OS) and disease-free survival (DFS). Kallikrein-7 / KLK7 may catalyze the degradation of intercellular cohesive structures in the cornified layer of the skin in the continuous shedding of cells from the skin surface. KLK7 also plays a role in the activation of precursors to inflammatory cytokines.
