SERPINA6

A gene on chromosome 14q32.1 that encodes an alpha-globulin with corticosteroid-binding properties, which is the major transport protein for glucocorticoids and progestins in most vertebrates. SERPINA6 localises to a chromosomal region containing several closely related serine protease inhibitors, and may have evolved by duplication events.
