    IGSF3 Summary & Protein Information

    IGSF3 Background

    Gene Summary: By fluorescence in situ hybridization and somatic cell hybrid analyses, Saupe et al. (1998) localized the human IGSF3 gene to 1p13 and demonstrated the presence of related sequences on chromosomes 2 and 13.
    General information above from NCBI
    Subcellular location: Membrane; Single-pass type I membrane protein (Potential).
    Tissue specificity: Expressed in a wide range of tissues with High expression in Placenta, kidney and lung.
    Sequence similarity: Contains 8 Ig-like C2-type (immunoglobulin-like) domains.
    General information above from UniProt

    Immunoglobulin superfamily member 3 (IGSF3), also known as Glu-Trp-Ile EWI motif-containing protein 3, IgSF3 and EWI-3 and IGSF3, is a single-pass type I membrane protein which belongs to the EWI subfamily of the Ig Superfamily of molecules. IGSF3 has an overall structural similarity and strong sequence similarity to V7, a human leukocyte surface protein. IGSF3 contains eight Ig-like C2-type (immunoglobulin-like) domains. IGSF3 is expressed in a wide range of tissues with high expression in Placenta, kidney and lung. EWI-2 is part of a novel Ig subfamily that includes EWI-F (F2alpha receptor regulatory protein (FPRP), CD9P-1 ), EWI-3 (IGSF3), and EWI-101 (CD101). All four members of this Ig subfamily contain a Glu-Trp-Ile (EWI) motif not seen in other Ig proteins. Human IGSF3 shares 92 % aa identity with mouse IGSF3.
