|Function||The alpha subunit has cell adhesive properties. Can act both as an adhesion and an anti-adhesion protein. May provide a protective layer on epithelial cells against bacterial and enzyme attack.|
|Cellular Location||Apical cell membrane; Single- pass type I membrane protein. Note=Exclusively located in the apical domain of the plasma membrane of highly polarized epithelial cells. After endocytosis, internalized and recycled to the cell membrane. Located to microvilli and to the tips of long filopodial protusions Isoform Y: Secreted. Mucin-1 subunit beta: Cell membrane. Cytoplasm. Nucleus. Note=On EGF and PDGFRB stimulation, transported to the nucleus through interaction with CTNNB1, a process which is stimulated by phosphorylation. On HRG stimulation, colocalizes with JUP/gamma-catenin at the nucleus|

Mucin 1, cell surface associated (MUC1) or polymorphic epithelial mucin (PEM) is a mucin encoded by the MUC1 gene in humans. This gene encodes a membrane-bound protein that is a member of the mucin family. Mucins are O-glycosylated proteins that play an essential role in forming protective mucous barriers on epithelial surfaces. It is mapped to 1q22. Mucin 1 is a transmembrane mucin normally expressed on the apical borders of secretory epithelial cells. Overexpression of Mucin 1 is often associated with colon, breast, ovarian, lung and pancreatic cancers. The protein serves a protective function by binding to pathogens and also functions in a cell signaling capacity. Mucin 1 stimulated ESR1-mediated transcription and contributed to estradiol-mediated growth and survival of breast cancer cells. This gene also can suppress pulmonary innate immunity, and its antiinflammatory activity may play an important modulatory role during microbial infection.
