Summaries for SERPINA6 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for SERPINA6 Gene

  • 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.
