This gene encodes an alpha-globulin protein with corticosteroid-binding properties. This is the major transport protein for glucorticoids and progestins in the blood of most vertebrates. The gene localizes to a chromosomal region containing several closely related serine protease inhibitors which may have evolved by duplication events. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
GeneCards Summary for SERPINA6 Gene
SERPINA6 (Serpin Peptidase Inhibitor, Clade A (Alpha-1 Antiproteinase, Antitrypsin), Member 6) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with SERPINA6 include corticosteroid-binding globulin deficiency and adrenal gland hyperfunction. Among its related pathways are Glucocorticoid Pathway (Peripheral Tissue), Pharmacodynamics. GO annotations related to this gene include serine-type endopeptidase inhibitor activity and steroid binding. An important paralog of this gene is SERPINA10.
