Mucin MUC7

Joseph Z. Zaretsky and Daniel H. Wreschner

Abstract

The MUC7 gene belongs to a group of genes encoding soluble mucin glycoproteins. This chapter describes the structure of the MUC7 gene and its protein product; the mechanisms responsible for regulation of its expression; important functions associated with the individual domains; and the role of posttranslational modifications of the MUC7 apomucin in expression of the functions embedded in its polypeptide structure.
