Summary
This gene encodes a protein that is a member of the WFDC domain family. The WFDC domain, or WAP Signature motif, contains eight cysteines forming four disulfide bonds at the core of the protein, and functions as a protease inhibitor in many family members. This gene is expressed in pulmonary epithelial cells, and was also found to be expressed in some ovarian cancers. The encoded protein is a small secretory protein, which may be involved in sperm maturation. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

NCBI Reference Sequences (RefSeq)

RefSeqs maintained independently of Annotated Genomes

These reference sequences exist independently of genome builds. Explain

These reference sequences are curated independently of the genome annotation cycle, so their versions may not match the RefSeq versions in the current genome build. Identify version mismatches by comparing the version of the RefSeq in this section to the one reported in Genomic regions, transcripts, and products above.

Suppressed Reference Sequence(s)

The following Reference Sequences have been suppressed. Explain

  1. NM_080733.1: Suppressed sequence

    Description
    NM_080733.1: This RefSeq was permanently suppressed because it is a nonsense-mediated mRNA decay (NMD) candidate.
  2. NM_080734.1: Suppressed sequence

    Description
    NM_080734.1: This RefSeq was permanently suppressed because currently there is insufficient support for the transcript and the protein.
  3. NM_080735.1: Suppressed sequence

    Description
    NM_080735.1: This RefSeq was permanently suppressed because currently there is insufficient support for the transcript and the protein.
  4. NM_080736.1: Suppressed sequence

    Description
    NM_080736.1: This RefSeq was permanently suppressed because currently there is insufficient support for the transcript and the protein.
