PHYSICAL PROPERTIES
STRUCTURE
motifs/domains
  • N terminal cysteine-rich domain (EMI)
  • C1q domain at the C terminus
  • a short collagenous stalk
  • eight potential N glycosylation sites
  • a prolinr rich sequence
  • conjugated GlycoP
    mono polymer homomer , trimer
    isoforms Precursor containing a putative polyadenylation site in the 3'UTR, a secretory signal peptide, a consensus signal cleavage site leading to a mature protein made of 1023 aa and a 112 kDa
    HOMOLOGY
    intraspecies homolog to murine Emilin2
    Homologene
    FAMILY EMILIN family, EMI domain containing superfamily
