Gene: BSG (basigin (Ok blood group)) Homo sapiens
Symbol: BSG
Name: basigin (Ok blood group)
Description: Exhibits cadherin binding activity. Involved in positive regulation of interleukin-6 production. Localizes to the intracellular membrane-bounded organelle and plasma membrane. Biomarker of breast ductal carcinoma; carcinoma (multiple); and cervical cancer.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
