Gene: MELTF (melanotransferrin) Homo sapiens
Symbol: MELTF
Name: melanotransferrin
Description: The protein encoded by this gene is a cell-surface glycoprotein found on melanoma cells. The protein shares sequence similarity and iron-binding properties with members of the transferrin superfamily. The importance of the iron binding function has not yet been identified. This gene resides in the same region of chromosome 3 as members of the transferrin superfamily. Alternative splicing results in two transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
