Choanal (CA) and gastrointestinal atresias (GA) are an important feature of syndromic congenital sodium diarrhea (sCSD), a disorder recently associated with mutations in the gene for serine protease inhibitor type 2 (SPINT2). The SPINT2 gene is epigenetically silenced or downregulated in human cancers, altering the balance of HGF activation/inhibition ratio, which contributes to cancer development and progression. SPINT2 is a tumor suppressor gene that inhibits proteases implicated in cancer progression, like HGFA, hepsin and matriptase. Loss of SPINT2 expression in tumors has been associated with gene promoter hypermethylation. SPINT2 (serine peptidase inhibitor Kunitz type 2), a proteolytic inhibitor of hepatocyte growth factor activator (HGFA), which has a significant role in the suppression of the HGF-MET pathway and malignant melanoma progression.
A DNA sequence encoding the extracellular domain (Met 1-Lys 140) of mouse SPINT2 (NP_001076017.1) precursor was expressed with a C-terminal polyhistidine tag.
