ⓘ EGFL7

Epidermal Growth Factor like domain 7 Egfl7 also known as Vascular Endothelial-statin VE-statin codes for a gene mostly expressed in endothelial cells. The egfl7 gene is located on chromosomes 9 and 2 in human and mouse, respectively, and is structured in 11 exons and introns, including intron-1a and 1b which are alternatively transcribed from two different promoters. These transcripts vary only in the first exon and code for the same protein which is initiated in the third exon The seventh intron of the egfl7 gene contains a miRNA site for miR-126 and miR-126.
