DMBT1

A gene on chromosome 10q26.13 that encodes a glycoprotein containing multiple scavenger receptor cysteine-rich (SRCR) domains separated by SRCR-interspersed domains, which is thought to play a role in the interaction of tumour cells and the immune system.

ZP domains have been found in nonmammalian egg-coating multidomain transmembrane proteins such as tumor growth factor-beta receptor III [64, 65], major zymogen granule pancreatic glycoprotein GP2 [66-68], pancreatic ductal protein muclin, uromodulin (also known as Tamm-Horsfall protein) [69], inner ear protein [beta]-tectorin, endoglin, no-mechanoreceptor potential-A (NompA), cuticlin-1, and intriguingly, in DMBT1 [70, 71].
