Summation

Extracellular SPINK9 (Serine protease inhibitor Kazal-type 6) binds KLK5 (kallekrein-related peptidase 5), inactivating the latter. KLK5 activity contributes to the process of desquamation, and SPINK9 binding may play a role in the regulation of that process (Brattsand et al. 2009; Meyer-Hoffert et al. 2009).
