    PHYSICAL PROPERTIES
    STRUCTURE
    motifs/domains
  • secreted protein with five EGF repeats
  • three of them displaying the typical signature of the calcium binding EGF-like domain
  • a MAM domain believed to have adhesive function at the C terminus
  • two glycosylation site
  • an integrin association motif (RGD), that binds to integrins
  • a protein kinase C phosphorylation site
  • three hydroxylation sites, ATP/GDP binding site inside the MAM domain
  • HOMOLOGY
    intraspecies homolog to fibrillin
    Homologene
    FAMILY
  • nephronectin family
  • epidermal growth factor (EGF) repeat superfamily proteins
  • CATEGORY enzyme
    SUBCELLULAR LOCALIZATION extracellular
    basic FUNCTION
  • may play a role as a mediator regulating epithelial-mesenchymal interaction through binding to RGD-binding integrins including alpha8beta1 during hair follicle development
  • adipose tissue-secreted protein, and extra-cellular matrix protein
  • paracrine/autocrine growth factor of adipose tissue up-regulated in obesity and potentially involved in the process of adipose tissue expansion and the development of obesity
  • may play a role as a mediator regulating epithelial-mesenchymal interaction during hair follicle development
  • induces angiogenesis by a paracrine mechanism in which EGFL6 is expressed in osteoblastic-like cells but promotes migration and angiogenesis of endothelial cells
  • mediates a paracrine mechanism of cross-talk between osteoblastic-like cells and vascular endothelial cells to regulate angiogenesis in the bone local environment
  • produced by osteoblastic-like cells and plays a role in endothelial cells and angiogenesis
  • has a specific role in the induction of endothelial cell migration and angiogenesis through the activation of ERK pathway
