Vitronectin Gene Sequence, Family, Fuction and Expression Information
Vitronectin cDNA / Gene Overview
VTN gene / cDNA is a protein-coding gene which located on 17q11.2. The VTN gene is conserved in chimpanzee, Rhesus monkey, dog, cow, mouse, rat, chicken, zebrafish, and frog.219 organisms have orthologs with human gene VTN.
The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the pexin family. It is found in serum and tissues and promotes cell adhesion and spreading, inhibits the membrane-damaging effect of the terminal cytolytic complement pathway, and binds to several serpin serine protease inhibitors. It is a secreted protein and exists in either a single chain form or a clipped, two chain form held together by a disulfide bond. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
