Target (abbrv.) Kallikrein 7
Target (full name) Kallikrein-7
Somalogic ID (Sequence ID) SL000064 (3378-49_2)
Entrez Gene Symbol KLK7
UniProt ID P49862
UniProt Comment
  • 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. Specific for amino acid residues with aromatic side chains in the P1 position. Cleaves insulin A chain at '14-Tyr-|-Gln-15' and insulin B chain at '6-Leu-|-Cys-7', '16-Tyr-|-Leu-17', '25-Phe-|-Tyr-26' and '26-Tyr-|-Thr-27'. Could play a role in the activation of precursors to inflammatory cytokines.
Biomarker applications (based on IPA annotation)
  • diagnosis
  • Degradation of the extracellular matrix

All locus annotations are based on the sentinel SNP (rs2659067) and 5 proxy variant(s) that is/are in linkage disequilibrium r2 ≥ 0.8. Linkage disequilibrium is based on data from the 1000 Genomes Project, phase 3 version 5, European population and was retrieved using SNiPA's Block Annotation feature.
