Pregnancy specific beta-1-glycoprotein 6

PSG6, PSG12, Cgm3, PSGGB, PSG10
The human pregnancy-specific glycoproteins (PSGs) are a group of molecules that are mainly produced by the placental syncytiotrophoblasts during pregnancy. PSGs comprise a subgroup of the carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) family, which belongs to the immunoglobulin superfamily. For additional general information about the PSG gene family, see PSG1 (MIM 176390).[supplied by OMIM, Oct 2009] (from NCBI)
Top mentioned proteins: PSG, CD45, PSG11, CEA, ACID
