Gene: MELTF (melanotransferrin) Homo sapiens
Symbol: MELTF
Name: melanotransferrin
Description: Exhibits iron ion binding activity. Involved in several processes, including negative regulation of substrate adhesion-dependent cell spreading; positive regulation of extracellular matrix disassembly; and positive regulation of plasminogen activation. Localizes to the anchored component of plasma membrane and cell surface.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: antigen p97 (melanoma associated) identified by monoclonal antibodies 133.2 and 96.5; CD228; FLJ38863; MAP97; melanoma-associated antigen p97, isoform 2; membrane-bound transferrin-like protein; MFI2; MGC4856; MTf; MTF1
