    PHYSICAL PROPERTIES

    motifs/domains
  • a whey acidic protein-type (Wap) four-disulfide core domain, characterized by serine protease inhibition activity in a number of whey acidic protein domain-containing proteins (McAlhany 2003)
  • eight cysteines forming four disulfide bonds at the core of protein
  • HOMOLOGY
    interspecies homolog to rattus Ps20
    homolog to C.elegans Moc1

    CATEGORY tumor suppressor
    SUBCELLULAR LOCALIZATION extracellular
    basic FUNCTION
  • promotes endothelial cell motility but has no effect on endothelial cell proliferation (McAlhany 2003)
  • may be a TGF-beta1-induced regulator of angiogenesis that functions by either promoting endothelial cell migration or by contributing to pericyte stabilization of newly formed vascular structures (McAlhany 2003)
  • not classical tumor suppressor gene, but might play a role in the maintenance of the normal extra cellular matrix milieu in the prostate (Watson 2004)
  • playing an essential role in mammalian eye development (Abbasi 2009)
  • playing an important role in inhibiting proliferation of both tumors and senescent cells (Madar 2009)
