Granzyme B is a serine protease that is mainly produced by cytotoxic T cells (CTL) and NK cells. It plays important roles in cytotoxic lymphocyte-mediated apoptosis, chronic inflammation, and impaired wound healing. Granzyme B is packaged in cytoplasmic granules that are exocytosed towards a bound target cell, and subsequently activates multiple protein substrates to induce apoptosis. Perforin facilitates the transfer of Granzyme B into the target cell. Most circulating CD56+ CD8- NK cells and approximately half of circulating CD8+ T cells coexpress both Granzyme A and B. The activation of CD8+ and CD4+ T lymphocytes induces substantial expression of Granzyme B, but not Granzyme A. Recently, Granzyme B has been found to be produced by other cell types such as CD34+ hematopoietic progenitor cells, keratinocytes, basophils, mast cells, plasmacytoid dendritic cells, B cells, and smooth muscle cells. Elevated levels of Granzyme B are also found in some kinds of autoimmune diseases, type 1 diabetes, and cardiovascular diseases.Product Details
