Expressed in various tissues and cells such as in peripheral mononuclear cells and hormone-secreting pituitary cells. Expression in pancreatic lymph nodes of patients with type 1 diabetes is 20 times higher than in healthy controls. Highly expressed in fetal and adult brain.
[Isoform 1]: Nucleus. Cytoplasm. Cytoplasmic in non-mucinous colorectal carcinoma. When expressed alone, localized almost exclusively in the nucleus but, when expressed with isoform 4, nuclear expression decreases to 32% and cytoplasmic expression increases by 270%.; [Isoform 2]: Secreted. Secreted in some cell types.; [Isoform 3]: Secreted. Secreted in some cell types.; [Isoform 4]: Cytoplasm. Nucleus. When expressed alone, localizes mainly in the cytoplasm but, when expressed with isoform 1, nuclear localization is enhanced.
