Aliases:This biomarker is also known as:
- chromosome 15 open reading frame 48,
- normal mucosa of esophagus-specific gene 1 protein,
- Protein FOAP-11,
- normal mucosa of esophagus specific 1,
C15orf48 is expressed mainly in adult stomach, placenta, small intestine and colon, as well as in normal mucosa of esophagus. The gene was first identified in a study of human esophageal squamous cell carcinoma tissues. Levels of both the message and protein are reduced in carcinoma samples. Alternatively spliced transcript variants that encode the same protein have been identified.
