|Official Full Name||WAP four-disulfide core domain 2|
|Background||This gene encodes a protein that is a member of the WFDC domain family. The WFDC domain, or WAP Signature motif, contains eight cysteines forming four disulfide bonds at the core of the protein, and functions as a protease inhibitor in many family members. This gene is expressed in pulmonary epithelial cells, and was also found to be expressed in some ovarian cancers. The encoded protein is a small secretory protein, which may be involved in sperm maturation. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]|

WFDC2 has several biochemical functions, for example, aspartic-type endopeptidase inhibitor activity, cysteine-type endopeptidase inhibitor activity, endopeptidase inhibitor activity. Some of the functions are cooperated with other proteins, some of the functions could acted by WFDC2 itself.
