Mucin-17 is a protein that in humans is encoded by the MUC17 gene.[1][2]

Membrane mucins, such as MUC17, function in epithelial cells to provide cytoprotection, maintain luminal structure, provide signal transduction, and confer antiadhesive properties upon cancer cells that lose their apical/basal polarization.[supplied by OMIM][2]
