Hydrolyzes semenogelin-1 thus leading to the liquefaction of the seminal coagulum. Forms heterodimer with SERPINA5. Inhibited by SERPINA5. Activity is strongly inhibited by Zn2+, 100 times more abundant in semen than in serum. This inhibition is relieved by exposure to semenogelins, which are avid zinc binders. Belongs to the peptidase S1 family. Kallikrein subfamily. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
