Description
The protein is a member of the transmembrane 4 superfamily, also known as the tetraspanin family. Most of these members are cell-surface proteins that are characterized by the presence of four hydrophobic domains. The proteins mediate signal transduction events that play a role in the regulation of cell development, activation, growth and motility. This encoded protein is a cell surface glycoprotein that is known to complex with integrins. This protein appears to promote muscle cell fusion and support myotube maintenance. Also it may be involved in signal transduction. This gene is localized in the tumor-suppressor gene region and thus it is a candidate gene for malignancies. Two transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene.

We provide highly purified Virus-Like Particles (VLPs) products as antigens, produced in a native format, mostly using a mammalian expression system. Custom VLPs synthesis is also offered presented as a cell lysate or a purified antigen for use in vaccine development (including use as an immunogen) and serological based diagnostic assays. We like to be in touch with our customers so please feel free to contact us for a formal quote.
