Granzyme K (GrK) belongs to a family of trypsin-like serine proteases localised in the cytotoxic granules of activated T cells and NK cells. It encodes a 28 kDa serine protease whose gene is located on chromosome 5q11-12 close to the granzyme A-encoding gene. Like granzyme A, it has a trypsin-like specifity cleaving at the basic residues arginine and lysine. Granzyme K triggers rapid cell death independently of caspase activation with single-stranded DNA nicks and is primarily expressed in thymus, lung, spleen and peripheral blood leukocytes.
