Aliases:This biomarker is also known as:
- elastin microfibril interfacer 2,
- Elastin microfibril interface-located protein 2,
EMILIN2, a secreted protein, may be responsible for anchoring smooth muscle cells to elastic fibers, and may be involved not only in the formation of the elastic fiber, but also in the processes that regulate vessel assembly. EMILIN2 has cell adhesive capacity. Highest levels of this protein are present in fetal heart and adult lung. Intermediate levels in peripheral leukocytes, placenta, and spinal cord and low expression in fetal brain, spleen, thymus, and lung and in adult heart, aorta, testis, bone marrow, small intestine, thymus, lymph node, and appendix.
