FAM3C is a 227 amino acid secretory protein that belongs to a novel cytokine-like family with sequence similarity to FAM3 family. FAM3C is a signaling cytokine with a GG domain, hydrophobic leader sequence and an N-terminal signal peptide. FAM3C has a cytokine activity and shows a change in expression in pancreatic cancer-derived cells. It is ubiquitously expressed in most of the tissues. Reports suggest that FAM3C plays an important role in inner ear development and may thus be involved in cell differentiation and proliferation during inner ear embryogenesis.
