MGI: 104678 HomoloGene: 7409 GeneCards: TM4SF1
Transmembrane 4 L6 family member 1 is a protein that in humans is encoded by the TM4SF1 gene.
The protein encoded by this gene 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 antigen and is highly expressed in different carcinomas.
