Characterization of SPINK9, a KLK5-specific inhibitor expressed in palmo-plantar epidermis
TLDR
Modeling of the enzyme-inhibitor complexes showed that the reactive loop of SPINK9 fits very well into the deep negatively charged binding pocket of KLK5 and substitution with a positively charged amino acid at position 48 resulted in a more efficient inhibitor at higher pH. Expand
