Description…

EGFL6 is a member of the epidermal growth factor (EGF) repeat superfamily. This family is characterized by EGF-like repeats. Members are involved in the regulation of cell cycle, proliferation, and developmental processes. The presence of a signal peptide indicates it is a secreted protein. The EGFL6 gene is expressed during early development.

Overview

EGFL6 is a secreted tumor vascular marker (TVM) that is selectively expressed in tumor vasculature and represents a promising target for vascular imaging or anti-vascular therapy of epithelial ovarian cancer.

Performance Comment

EGFL6 was one of 13 genes out of 50 selected for further validation in PMID:21617380. Average expression of EGFL6 was significantly higher in epithelial ovarian cancer tumors than any other normal tissue tested.
