Identification and tissue expression of a splice variant for the growth arrest-specific gene gas6.


The growth arrest-specific gene gas6 encodes a secreted protein (Gas6) which is a member of the vitamin K-dependent protein family and was identified as a ligand for the Ax1 tyrosine kinase receptor family. Gas6 shares significant similarity with protein S and a similar domain organisation: an extensively gamma-carboxylated amino-terminal, four epidermal… (More)
