26099606 KLK8 mRNA expression is associated with aggressive tumor characteristics and it can serve as a novel independent biomarker of unfavorable prognosis for BC patients.
25926655 Occurring independently of cyclophilins and of furin that mediate human papillomavirus 16 L2 exposure, KLK8-mediated cleavage of L1 likely facilitated access to L2, located in the capsid lumen, and potentially uncoating.
24614639 It dissects a schizophrenic susceptibility gene, NRG1.
22505524 KLK8 and KLK14 can signal differentially via the PARs to affect tissue function
20940292 KLK8 as a new active serine protease in human stratum corneum and sweat
20614312 The results of this study indicate that most salivary gland tumors show high levels of expression of KLK8.
20424135 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
20360129 The KLK8-T4 alternative splice variant, alone or in combination, may be a new independent marker of unfavorable prognosis in lung cancer.
19558318 Combination of KLK2, 3, 13, and 14 and KLK1, 2, 5, 6, 7, 8, 10, 13, and 14 showed very strong discriminatory potential for semen liquefaction and viscosity, respectively.
19125171 The processed end-point enzymes are the same for both type I and type II kallikrein 8, suggesting that the emergence of type II kallikrein 8 in the human brain likely leads to functional modifications of kallikrein 8.
