Description…

PCDH17 is a member of the protocadherin gene family, a subfamily of the cadherin superfamily. PCDH17 has six extracellular cadherin domains, a transmembrane domain, and a cytoplasmic tail which is different from those of the classical cadherins.

Ovary

Attributes

Phase: One
QA State: Under Review

Overview

No additional ovarian data available.

Performance Comment

PCDH17 was one of 50 tumor vasculature-associated genes with transmembrane or secreted protein products identified through expression profiling of ovarian cancer vascular cells. These 50 tumor vascular markers (TVMs) also had low or no expression in normal tissues. PCDH17 was not in the group of 13 selected for further validation.
