motifs/domains
  • ten leucine-rich repeats (LRR) flanked by cysteine-rich regions
  • a N linked glycosylation site (NKSIT motifs) in the LRR region
  • conjugated GlycoP

    Homologene
    FAMILY small-leucine-rich proteoglycans family

    SUBCELLULAR LOCALIZATION extracellular

    basic FUNCTION
  • playing a role in the regulation of collagen assembly into fibrils in various connective tissues
  • having a novel regulatory role in keratocan expression at the transcriptional level
  • regulating keratocan
  • stimulates cell migration in the corneal epithelium by activating ERK 1/2, and point to a novel signaling pathway implicated in corneal epithelial cell migration
  • plays pivotal roles in skin collagen fibrillogenesis and wound healing
  • may play a key role in the generation of a new collagen network by fibroblast-like cells
  • endogenous inhibitor of TGFB2 activity, resulting in downstream effector modulation including SMAD2, integrin beta1 and PTK2 to regulate osteosarcoma adhesion
  • reduces tumor growth via induction of fas-mediated endothelial cell apoptosis
  • efficient inhibitor of cell adhesion and migration
  • affects angiogenesis both by interfering with alpha2beta1 receptor activity and downregulating proteolytic activity associated with surface membranes of endothelial cells
