This antibody reacts with a 32 kDa protein. Granzymes are neutral serine proteases, which are stored in specialized lytic granules of cytotoxic T lymphocytes (CTL) and in natural killer (NK) cells. A number of granzymes (A to G) have been isolated and cloned. Human granzyme B is involved in target cell apoptosis during lymphocyte-mediated cytotoxicity. This antibody is useful in the localization of granzyme B containing lytic granules and for the characterization of activated CTL or NK cells.
