Human Midkine (Neurite Growth-Promoting Factor 2) (MDK) interaction partners

  1. Data suggest that mature KLK9 (kallikrein 9 (show KLK9 Proteins)) is a glycosylated chymotrypsin-like enzyme with strong preference for tyrosine over phenylalanine at P1 cleavage position; substrate specificity of KLK9 (show KLK9 Proteins) appears to extend to KLK10 (show KLK10 Proteins) and midkine; enzyme activity is enhanced by Mg2 (show MUC7 Proteins)+ and Ca2 (show CA2 Proteins)+, but is reversibly attenuated by Zn2+; KLK9 (show KLK9 Proteins) is inhibited in vitro by many naturally occurring or synthetic protease inhibitors.

MDK Protein Profile

Protein Summary

This gene encodes a member of a small family of secreted growth factors that binds heparin and responds to retinoic acid. The encoded protein promotes cell growth, migration, and angiogenesis, in particular during tumorigenesis. This gene has been targeted as a therapeutic for a variety of different disorders. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding multiple isoforms have been observed.
