Epidermal growth factor-like protein 6, EGF-L6, Egfl6, Maeg.


Epidermal Growth Factor­like Domain Multiple 6 (EGFL6) belongs to the EGF repeat superfamily of proteins, whose members are involved in the regulation of cell cycle, proliferation, and developmental processes. EGFL6 gene product contains a signal peptide, suggesting that EGFL6 is secreted; an EGF repeat region consisting of four complete EGF-like repeats and 1 partial EGF-like repeat, 3 of which have a calcium-binding consensus sequence; an arg-gly-asp integrin association motif; and a MAM domain, which is assumed to have an adhesive function. Within shared regions, human EGFL6 shares 75% and 78% amino acid sequence identity with the mouse and rat orthologs, respectively. EGFL6 is expressed in various fetal tissues during early development such as the lung, heart, liver, spleen, cochlea and the placenta, as well as meningioma tumors.


EGFL6 Mouse Recombinant produced in Sf9 Insect cells is a single, glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 273 amino acids (287-550a.a.) and having a molecular mass of 31.1kDa (Molecular size on SDS-PAGE will appear at approximately 28-40kDa).
EGFL6 is expressed with a 9 amino acid His tag at C-Terminus and purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.

EGF-Like Domain Multiple 6 (EGFL6) is a secreted protein that belongs to the epidermal growth factor (EGF) family. Mouse recombinant EGFL6, produced through genetic engineering techniques, provides a valuable tool for investigating its biological functions and potential therapeutic applications.


Production and Characterization:

Recombinant EGFL6 is typically generated using expression systems such as bacteria or mammalian cells. The protein is then purified and characterized to ensure its structural integrity and functional activity. Rigorous quality control measures are implemented to confirm the specificity and potency of the recombinant EGFL6.


Biological Significance:

EGFL6 plays a crucial role in diverse cellular processes, including angiogenesis, tissue regeneration, and cell proliferation. It is involved in the modulation of signaling pathways, such as the Wnt/β-catenin pathway, and interacts with extracellular matrix components. Recombinant EGFL6 offers a valuable tool for investigating the molecular mechanisms underlying its biological functions and its involvement in disease pathogenesis.


Role in Cancer:

EGFL6 is implicated in cancer progression and metastasis. It promotes tumor angiogenesis, invasion, and resistance to chemotherapy. Studies utilizing recombinant EGFL6 can contribute to a better understanding of its role in tumor microenvironment remodeling and the development of targeted therapeutic strategies.


Therapeutic Implications:

Given its involvement in various cellular processes and disease pathogenesis, EGFL6 has emerged as a potential therapeutic target. Recombinant EGFL6-based therapies, such as antibody-based approaches or small molecule inhibitors, hold promise for cancer treatment and regenerative medicine. Ongoing research is focused on developing strategies to modulate EGFL6 activity for therapeutic benefit.



Mouse recombinant EGFL6 serves as a valuable research tool for studying its biological functions and exploring its therapeutic potential. Its production, characterization, and applications in understanding cellular processes and disease pathogenesis contribute to our knowledge of EGFL6 biology and the development of targeted interventions. Continued research and clinical investigations exploring the therapeutic applications of recombinant EGFL6 offer promising avenues for improving outcomes in cancer and regenerative medicine.
