Kallikrein 6, also known as Zyme, Neurosin, PRSS9, myelencephalon-specific protease (MSP) and protease M, is a trypsin-like serine proteinase. Kallikrein 6 was originally described from the brain as an enzyme involved in degradation of amyloid plaque protein (APP) and hK6 was thought to be a beta secretase. Kallikrein 6 was shown to be elevated in the sera patients with Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease and in animal models of multiple sclerosis.
Kallikrein 6 is found in greatest abundance in the brain, neuronal tissues and human breast milk with lesser levels in the kidney, thymus, spleen and lymph nodes.
