MFI2 Gene Sequence, Family, Fuction and Expression Information

MFI2 cDNA / Gene Overview

MELTF gene / cDNA is a protein-coding gene which located on 3q29. The MELTF gene is conserved in chimpanzee, Rhesus monkey, dog, cow, mouse, rat, chicken, zebrafish, fruit fly, mosquito, and frog.226 organisms have orthologs with human gene MELTF.

MFI2 cDNA / Gene Function

The protein encoded by this gene is a cell-surface glycoprotein found on melanoma cells. The protein shares sequence similarity and iron-binding properties with members of the transferrin superfamily. The importance of the iron binding function has not yet been identified. This gene resides in the same region of chromosome 3 as members of the transferrin superfamily. Alternative splicing results in two transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
