kallikrein related peptidase 13

ENTREZID: 26085 | Type: NA | Map: 19q13.41

OMIM: 300335

Summary Entrez
Kallikreins are a subgroup of serine proteases having diverse physiological functions. Growing evidence suggests that many kallikreins are implicated in carcinogenesis and some have potential as novel cancer and other disease biomarkers. This gene is one of the fifteen kallikrein subfamily members located in a cluster on chromosome 19. Expression of this gene is regulated by steroid hormones and may be useful as a marker for breast cancer. [provided by RefSeq, Jan 2017]
