NCBI Description of MUC6
|The MUC6 gene encodes gastric mucin, a secreted glycoprotein that plays an essential role in epithelial cytoprotection from acid, proteases, pathogenic microorganisms, and mechanical trauma in the gastrointestinal tract (summary by Toribara et al., 1993 [PubMed 7680650]).[supplied by OMIM, Dec 2010]. Sequence Note: The RefSeq transcript was derived from genomic sequence based on transcript alignments and the published description of the gene structure (PubMed ID 15081123).|
