Gene information for TFF1 (Homo sapiens)
(Information is obtained from NCBI Gene database)
Entrez gene ID7031
Official gene symbolTFF1
Full nametrefoil factor 1
Gene summaryMembers of the trefoil family are characterized by having at least one copy of the trefoil motif, a 40-amino acid domain that contains three conserved disulfides. They are stable secretory proteins expressed in gastrointestinal mucosa. Their functions are not defined, but they may protect the mucosa from insults, stabilize the mucus layer, and affect healing of the epithelium. This gene, which is expressed in the gastric mucosa, has also been studied because of its expression in human tumors. This gene and two other related trefoil family member genes are found in a cluster on chromosome 21. [provided by RefSeq]
