MFGE8

A gene on chromosome 15q25 that encodes medin (milk fat globule-EGF factor 8 protein), which plays a key role in maintaining epithelial homeostasis and in promoting mucosal healing. Medin promotes VEGF-dependent neovascularisation, helps remove apoptotosed cells, binds to phosphatidylserine-enriched cell surfaces in a receptor-independent manner and binds rotavirus, inhibiting its replication.
