Entrez Gene Summary for EPPIN-WFDC6 Gene

  • This locus represents naturally occurring read-through transcription between the neighboring SPINLW1 (serine peptidase inhibitor-like, with Kunitz and WAP domains 1) and WFDC6 (WAP four-disulfide core domain 6) genes. The read-through transcript encodes a fusion protein that shares sequence identity with the products of each individual gene. [provided by RefSeq, Nov 2010]

GeneCards Summary for EPPIN-WFDC6 Gene

O95925-EPPI_HUMAN
Tissue specificity: In testis, expressed and secreted by Sertoli cells, appearing on the surface of testicular and ejaculate spermatozoa. Expressed in the spermatogonia and the earliest preleptotene spermatocytes. In the epididymis, is expressed and secreted by epithelial cells and covers the surface of epididymal spermatozoa and ciliated epithelial cells (at protein level). Expressed specifically in epididymis and testis. Isoform 2 is expressed only in the epididymis. Weak expression is detected in myoid cells as well as spermatogenic cells.
