Aliases:This biomarker is also known as:
- TNF alpha-induced protein 6,
- tumor necrosis factor-stimulated gene-6 protein,
- tumor necrosis factor-inducible gene 6 protein,
- Tumor necrosis factor-inducible gene 6 protein,
- TNF-stimulated gene 6 protein,
- tumor necrosis factor, alpha-induced protein 6,
- Hyaluronate-binding protein,
TNFAIP6 is a secretory protein that contains a hyaluronan-binding domain, and thus is a member of the hyaluronan-binding protein family. It is possibly involved in cell-cell and cell-matrix interactions during inflammation and tumorigenesis. Enhanced levels of this protein are found in the synovial fluid of patients with osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.

TNFAIP6 (TSG6) localized to vascular-like structures in ovarian cancer but not in normal ovaries.
TNFAIP6 (TSG6) was one of 13 genes out of 50 selected for further validation in PMID:21617380. Average expression of TNFAIP6 was significantly higher in epithelial ovarian cancer tumors than any other normal tissue tested.
