|Protein Name||Secretoglobin family 1D member|
|Milk Fraction||Whey, MFGM|
|Ref Sequence Id||NP_001071275.1|
|Amino Acid Lenth||102|
|Protein Existence Status||Reviewed: Protein inferred from homology|
|Presence in other biological fluids/tissue/cells||breast carcinomas, estrogen receptor positive tumors; abundantly expressed in normal and malignant tissue from the breast, cervix, uterus, ovary, kidney and prostate; Lower or rare lipophilin B expression was found in normal colon, pancreas, heart, in gastric and rectal tumors, and as previously reported in normal testis and placenta and lung tumors; lipophilin B expression was also detected in the normal anterior pituitary and pituitary adenomas, in normal adrenal gland, cartilage, retina, skin, and salivary gland|
|Protein Function||Secretoglobins are small, secreted proteins increasingly recognized for their prognostic capacity in a variety of human cancers, though the precise pathophysiologic functions for most members remain to be elucidated|
|Biochemical Properties||Also known as lipophilin B; small and secretory; dimeric proteins; in breast cancer mammaglobin A and lipophilin B proteins form a covalent complex, and that the two proteins are bonded in a head-to-tail orientation; lipophilin binds PS, PA, or PG preferentially over PC|
|Significance in milk||More in colustrum; role in lipid droplet transport and nutrient delivery|
