General annotation (Comments)

Function

Coats the epithelia of the intestines, airways, and other mucus membrane-containing organs. Thought to provide a protective, lubricating barrier against particles and infectious agents at mucosal surfaces. Major constituent of both the inner and outer mucus layers of the colon and may play a role in excluding bacteria from the inner mucus layer By similarity.

Subunit structure

Homotrimer; disulfide-linked. Dimerizes in the endoplasmic reticulum via its C-terminal region and polymerizes via its N-terminal region by disulfide-linked trimerization. Interacts with FCGBP By similarity. Interacts with AGR2; disulfide-linked By similarity.

Subcellular location

Secreted. Note: In the intestine, secreted into the inner and outer mucus layers By similarity.

Tissue specificity

Expressed in intestine and airway.

Post-translational modification

O-glycosylated By similarity.

May undergo proteolytic cleavage in the outer mucus layer of the colon, contributing to the expanded volume and loose nature of this layer which allows for bacterial colonization in contrast to the inner mucus layer which is dense and devoid of bacteria By similarity.

May undergo autocatalytic cleavage in vivo triggered by the low pH of the late secretory pathway By similarity.

Sequence similarities

Contains 1 TIL (trypsin inhibitory-like) domain.

Contains 1 VWFC domain.

Contains 3 VWFD domains.
