Tumor necrosis factor-inducible gene 6 protein (TSG-6)

Target (abbrv.) TSG-6
Target (full name) Tumor necrosis factor-inducible gene 6 protein
Somalogic ID (Sequence ID) SL004782 (5036-50_1)
Entrez Gene Symbol TNFAIP6

UniProt Comment
  • Possibly involved in cell-cell and cell-matrix interactions during inflammation and tumorigenesis.
Biomarker applications (based on IPA annotation)
  • unspecified application

All locus annotations are based on the sentinel SNP (rs1046668) and 34 proxy variant(s) that is/are in linkage disequilibrium r2 ≥ 0.8. Linkage disequilibrium is based on data from the 1000 Genomes Project, phase 3 version 5, European population and was retrieved using SNiPA's Block Annotation feature.
