25383893 Data indicate N-terminomics on the human and mouse granzymes A and K by combined fractional diagonal chromatography (COFRADIC).
24711407 Extracellular GrK is an unexpected direct modulator of lipopolysaccharide-TLR4 signaling during the antimicrobial innate immune response.
21666061 Granzyme K plays an important physiological role in immunoregulation of adaptive immunity underlying the cytotoxicity of CD56(bright) natural killer (NK) cells toward activated T cells.
20377743 Gr3 proenzymes is activated by cathepsin C which concomitantly decreased the molecular weight to that of active Gr3.
19201868 p53 is as a cytotoxic bomb that can be triggered by granzyme K, leading to potentiating killing efficacy.
19059912 GrK not only constitutes a redundant functional backup mechanism that assists GrA-induced cell death but that it also displays a unique function by cleaving its own specific substrates.
17438453 Rsults indicate that plasma levels of Granzyme K could serve as a useful diagnostic marker to stage sepsis, permitting better classification, specific treatments of patients, and may play a functional role in the development of sepsis.
17308307 GzmK-induced caspase-independent death occurs through Bid-dependent mitochondrial damage that is different from GzmA
17008916 We found human GzmK triggers rapid cell death independently of caspase activation. The features of death are characterized by rapid externalization of phosphatidylserine, nuclear morphological changes and single-stranded DNA nicks.
12387726 The present findings thus introduce the possibility that human beta-tryptase, after mast cell degranulation and exposure to neutral pH in the tissue, may dissociate into active monomers with properties that are distinct from the tetrameric counterpart.
