TMEM27 (Transmembrane protein 27) is also named as collectrin and Belongs to the TMEM27 family. It is a stimulator of beta cell replication and a membrane protein cleaved and shed by pancreatic beta cells that has been proposed as a beta cell mass biomarker. Western blot analysis of mouse collecting duct cell lines detected Tmem27 at an apparent molecular mass of 32 kDa. TMEM27 is an N-glycosylated protein and forms dimers, with MW of 64-75 kDa.
