OVGP1

Aliases:
This biomarker is also known as:
  • OVGP1
  • oviductin
  • MUC9
  • mucin 9
  • EGP
  • oviductal glycoprotein 1, 120kDa
  • CHIT5
  • OGP

Description…

OVGP1, a large, carbohydrate-rich, epithelial glycoprotein with numerous O-glycosylation sites located within threonine, serine, and proline-rich tandem repeats, is secreted from non-ciliated oviductal epithelial cells and associates with ovulated oocytes, blastomeres, and spermatozoan acrosomal regions. The OVGP1 gene is similar to members of the mucin and the glycosyl hydrolase 18 gene families. Regulation of expression may be estrogen-dependent. Gene expression and protein secretion occur during late follicular development through early cleavage-stage embryonic development.
