Nectin-4 Molecule Background
Nectin-4 (gene name PVRL4, poliovirus receptor-like 4) is a 66 kDa type I transmembrane glycoprotein belonging to the Nectin family of Ig superfamily proteins. Nectins are cell adhesion molecules that play a key role in various biological processes such as polarity, proliferation, differentiation and migration, for epithelial, endothelial, immune and neuronal cells, during development and adult life. Nectin-4 is a tumor-associated antigen in 50%, 49% and 86%o of breast, ovarian and lung carcinomas, respectively, mostly on tumors of bad prognosis. Its expression is not detected in the corresponding normal tissues.
