Summaries for ITIH2 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for ITIH2 Gene

  • The inter-alpha-trypsin inhibitors (ITI) are a family of structurally related plasma serine protease inhibitors involved in extracellular matrix stabilization and in prevention of tumor metastasis. The ITI family contains multiple proteins made up of a light chain (see MIM 176870) and a variable number of heavy chains (Salier et al., 1987 [PubMed 2446322]; Himmelfarb et al., 2004 [PubMed 14744536]).[supplied by OMIM, Nov 2009]

GeneCards Summary for ITIH2 Gene

ITIH2 (Inter-Alpha-Trypsin Inhibitor Heavy Chain 2) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are PI-3K cascade and PI-3K cascade. GO annotations related to this gene include serine-type endopeptidase inhibitor activity and endopeptidase inhibitor activity. An important paralog of this gene is ITIH1.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for ITIH2 Gene

  • May act as a carrier of hyaluronan in serum or as a binding protein between hyaluronan and other matrix protein, including those on cell surfaces in tissues to regulate the localization, synthesis and degradation of hyaluronan which are essential to cells undergoing biological processes
