Short name: PIP

Family relationships

None.

Description

Prolactin-inducible (PIP) is a 17 kDa glycoprotein that binds to many proteins including fibrinogen, actin, keratin, myosin, immunoglobulin G, CD4, and human zinc-alpha-2 glycoprotein [PMID: 22209935]. It forms a complex with human serum albumin (HSA) in seminal plasma and may affect male fertility/infertility [PMID: 22209935]. It also acts as a factor capable of suppressing T-cell apoptosis through its interaction with CD4 [PMID: 11178965].
