Granzyme B is a 27kD serine protease stored in granules of activated cytotoxic T cells and NK cells. Upon target cell contact, granzyme B is directionally exocytosed and assisted by perforin, enters the target cell. With its unique substrate specificity (granzyme B cleaves after Asp), granzyme B processes and activates various pro-caspases thereby inducing apoptosis in the target cell.
