Summaries for MUC17 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for MUC17 Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene is a membrane-bound mucin that provides protection to gut epithelial cells. The encoded protein contains about 60 tandem repeats, with each repeat being around 60 aa. N-glycosylation enables the encoded protein to localize on the cell surface, while the C-terminus interacts with the scaffold protein PDZ domain containing 1 (PDZK1). Two transcript variants, one protein-coding and the other non-protein coding, have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Nov 2015]

GeneCards Summary for MUC17 Gene

MUC17 (Mucin 17, Cell Surface Associated) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with MUC17 include Biliary Papillomatosis and Colorectal Cancer 1. Among its related pathways are Immune System and HIV Life Cycle. GO annotations related to this gene include PDZ domain binding and extracellular matrix constituent, lubricant activity. An important paralog of this gene is MUC12.
