EGFL6: EGFL6 Protein | EGFL6 Antibody

EGFL6 Background

EGFL6, also known as EGF-L6, belongs to the epidermal growth factor (EGF) repeat superfamily. Members of this superfamily are characterized by the presence of EGF-like repeats and are often involved in the regulation of cell cycle, proliferation, and developmental processes. EGFL6 contains a signal peptide, suggesting that it is secreted; an EGF repeat region consisting of 4 complete EGF-like repeats and 1 partial EGF-like repeat, 3 of which have a calcium-binding consensus sequence; an arg-gly-asp integrin association motif; and a MAM domain, which is believed to have an adhesive function. EGFL6 gene is expressed early during development, and its expression has been detected in lung and meningioma tumors.
