HGNC name laminin, beta 2 (laminin S)
HGNC id 6487
PROTEIN
PHYSICAL PROPERTIES
STRUCTURE
motifs/domains
  • 4 laminin A/neurexin/sex hormone-binding (LNS) globular domains separated by
  • 13 EGF-like motifs within the N terminal short arm allowing the self assembly of chains through interactions of the most terminal globular domain (VI)
  • a long arm composed of heptad repeats typical of an cell alpha helical coiled-coil protein
  • C-terminal region of beta chains is involved in laminin recognition by integrins and modulates the binding affinities of laminins toward X2-type integrins
  • conjugated GlycoP
    mono polymer heteromer , trimer
    HOMOLOGY
    interspecies homolog to rattus Lamb2 (88.04 pc)
    homolog to murine Lamb2 (88.42 pc)
    intraspecies homolog to LAMB1
    Homologene

    SUBCELLULAR LOCALIZATION extracellular
    text glomeruli, nerve fascicle perineurium, vascular, basement membrane of neuromuscular junction (matrix and synaptic cleft of the neuromuscular junction)
    basic FUNCTION
  • mediating the attachment, migration and organization of cells into tissues during embryonic development by interacting with other extracellular matrix components
  • playing a role in anchoring as well as differentiation of podocytes foot processes
