Serpin Peptidase Inhibitor, Clade A (Alpha-1 Antiproteinase, Antitrypsin) Member 6 Peptide 1
CPTC-SERPINA6 Peptide 1
CBG; Serine (Or Cysteine) Proteinase Inhibitor, Clade A (Alpha-1 Antiproteinase,Antitrypsin), Member 6; Serpin A6; Serpin A6; Corticosteroid Binding Globulin; Transcortin
This gene encodes an alpha-globulin protein with corticosteroid-binding properties. This is the major transport protein for glucorticoids and progestins in the blood of most vertebrates. The gene localizes to a chromosomal region containing several closely related serine protease inhibitors which may have evolved by duplication events.
Major transport protein for glucocorticoids and progestins in the blood of almost all vertebrate species.
