48 Mb [43] The Tamm–Horsfall glycoprotein (THP) also known as uromodulin is a glycoprotein that in humans is encoded by the UMOD gene. These two represent the major variants of this gene and encode the same isoform.[] A role in bacterial binding and sequestration is suggested by studies showing that Escherichia coli expressing MS (mannose-sensitive) pili or fimbriae can be trapped by Tamm–Horsfall protein via its mannose-containing side chains. While several transcript variants may exist for this gene.[] Protein THP is a GPI-anchored glycoprotein.[][] Up to 150 mg/day of uromodulin may be excreted in the urine. it forms a gel. Function Uromodulin excretion in urine following proteolytic cleavage of the ectodomain of its glycophosphatidylinositol-anchored counterpart that is situated on the luminal cell surface of the loop of Henle. where uromodulin represents the 16th most concentrated one (results based on MSMS determinations). Uromodulin may act as a constitutive inhibitor of calcium crystallization in renal fluids. It is the matrix of urinary casts derived from the secretion of renal tubular cells. making it the most abundant protein in normal urine. The excretion of uromodulin in urine may provide defense against urinary tract infections caused by uropathogenic bacteria.TammHorsfall protein [36] [37] 2 RefSeq (mRNA) RefSeq (protein) NM_001008389 NP_001008390 NM_009470 NP_033496 [38] [39] Location (UCSC) Chr 16: [40] 20. It is not derived from blood plasma but is produced by the thick ascending limb of the loop of Henle of the mammalian kidney. the full-length natures of only two have been described to date.[] The function of THP is not well understood. Studies using THP deficient mice revealed that THP may have a role in regulatory physiology and actually participates in transporter function.[] When this protein is concentrated at low pH.[] . it is physiologically present in urine in large aggregates of up to several million Da. A recent list of the most abundant proteins in urine has been published (table 1 of[44]). While the monomeric molecule has a MW of approximately 68 kDa. Tamm–Horsfall protein is a high abundant protein in mammalian urine.34 – 20.46 – 119.37 Mb PubMed search [42] Chr 7: [41] 119. Gene The human UMOD gene is located on chromosome 16.
