BACKGROUND Kallikrein 11 (KLK11) is a newly discovered human kallikrein gene that is mainly expressed in the central nervous system and endocrine tissues. KLK11 has two alternative splicing isoforms, known as the brain type and prostate type. Many members of the human kallikrein gene family are differentially expressed in cancer and a few have potential as diagnostic/prognostic markers. METHODS In the present study, the expression of prostate type variant of KLK11 gene was analyzed by RT-PCR… CONTINUE READING
