TFF3 Antibody: Trefoil peptides are protease resistant molecules secreted throughout the gut that play a role in mucosal healing. Trefoil peptides contain three intrachain disulfide bonds, forming the trefoil motif, or P-domain and clustered in human chromosome 21q22.3. Trefoil Factor 3 (TFF3) is one of three trefoil peptides secreted by epithelial cells that line mucus membranes in the large and small intestines and lower respiratory tract. TFF3 is mainly active as a disulfide-linked homodimer and may have a role in promoting cell migration in healing processes. It is involved in the maintenance and repair of the intestinal mucosa.
