Technical Data
ANO7 (Anoctamin-7, Dresden Transmembrane Protein of the Prostate, D-TMPP, IPCA-5, New Gene Expressed in Prostate, Prostate Cancer-associated Protein 5, Transmembrane Protein 16G, NGEP, PCANAP5, TMEM16G)
NGEP is a prostate-specific protein that belongs to the TMEM16 family and consists of TM16H1, TM16H2 and TM16H3 domains. NGEP gene located at human chromosome 2q37.3, is expressed as two splice variants and encodes two different size proteins. The larger (NGEP-L) is derived from 18 exons, encodes a protein that is predicted to contain seven-membrane-spanning regions and is localized to the plasma membrane. The smaller (NGEP-S) is derived from four exons, encodes an intracellular protein and detected in the cytoplasm of the cell. Because of its selective expression in prostate cancer and its presence on the cell surface, NGEP is a promising target for the antibody-based therapies of prostate cancer. The protein also plays an important role in cell-cell interactions.
