Gene Family: S100 fused type protein family

Also known as : "SFTP family"

S100 fused type protein family: The S100 fused type protein (SFTP) family or fused gene family encompasses genes which are mainly expressed in stratified epithelia and play a role in epithelial homeostasis. Like S100 proteins, SFTPs contain two calcium-binding EF-hand motifs. These proteins are associated with cytoplasmic intermediate filaments as well as minor components of the CE. Due to their homologous structure they are also known as filaggrin-like proteins. [Source: Wikipedia]
