The activity of granzyme B, a main effector molecule of natural killer (NK) cells and cytotoxic T lymphocytes, is regulated by the intracellular serine proteinase inhibitor 9 (PI-9). Pig PI-9 was first cloned, and the sequences that encode pig PI-9, including the start codon and stop codon, were identified. The cDNA was inserted into the cloning site of… CONTINUE READING
