Osteosarcoma amplified 9 (OS-9), an endoplasmic reticulum (ER) lectin, is a protein coding gene located on 12q13 chromosome of humans.
Of all the meprin substrates identified to date, OS-9 provides the most direct link to the hypoxia response and provides new insights on how meprins modulate tubular injury in IR.
