Abstract

Tetraspanins (or TM4SF) are expressed in a wide variety of species and regulate cell adhesion, migration, proliferation and differentiation. We have identified and sequenced six new members of the tetraspanin family, called Tspan-1-6, from human cDNA. Amino acid sequence analysis of the Tspans highlights conserved residues which may be critical to tetraspanin structure and function. The Tspans are differentially expressed in human tissues.
