secretoglobin

Any of a family of small secreted mammalian proteins (consisting of approx. 70 linked amino acids) of unknown function. They are highly genetically conserved. Many are potent allergens.

Clara cell secretory protein of 10-16 kDa (CC16), also known as CC10, Club cell protein, CCSP, or uteroglobin [9,10], a member of the secretoglobin family [11], is the most abundant protein in bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) fluid or tracheal aspirates (TA) from neonates [12,13].
Secretoglobin protein, as a sort of CCSPs, has anti-inflammatory properties.
Genes such as EpCAM, cadherin 1_1 (CDH1_1), secretoglobin family 2A member 1 (SCGB2A1)/MAM, estrogen receptor 1 (ESR1), epithelial membrane protein 2 (EMP2), and KRT19 were exclusively expressed in CTCs, while protein tyrosine phosphatase, receptor type C (PTPRC; formerly called CD45) and vimentin (VIM) were predominant in the leukocytes.
Secretoglobin (SCGB) 3A2 belongs to the SCGB gene superfamily of cytokine-like secretory proteins of small molecular weight (~10kDa) [1-3].

showed that a panel of 6 genes was superior to EpCAM and secretoglobin, family 2A, member 2 (SCGB2A2, also known as mammaglobin and hMAM) for the detection of CTCs in breast cancer, and that theses genes may serve as potential markers for CTC derived from endometrial, cervical, and ovarian cancers as well (40).
By using a multimarker assay for CTC in early breast cancer, we have shown that CTCs positive for KRT19 (keratin 19; also known as CK19), SCGB2A2 (secretoglobin, family 2A, member 2; also known as MGB1, mammaglobin A), and ERBB2 are associated with shorter disease-free survival (6).
