Microfibrillar-associated protein 2

MAGP, MAGP-1, Microfibril-associated glycoprotein-1, MFAP2, Microfibril-associated glycoprotein
Microfibrillar-associated protein 2 is a major antigen of elastin-associated microfibrils and a candidate for involvement in the etiology of inherited connective tissue diseases. Four transcript variants encoding two different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Sep 2008] (from NCBI)
