Description…

GPM6B is a membrane glycoprotein belonging to the proteolipid protein family. It is thought to be involved in neural development. This protein family is expressed in the brain and may be involved in cellular housekeeping functions. GPM6B is involved in the regulation of osteoblast function and bone formation and matrix vesicle release by osteoblasts. GPM6B may be involved in cellular trafficking of SERT and thereby in regulation of serotonin uptake.

Ovary

Attributes

Phase: Two
QA State: Under Review

Overview

GPM6B has been investigated as a serum biomarker for ovarian cancer as reported in European journals.

Performance Comment

GPM6B 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. GPM6B was not in the group of 13 selected for further validation.
