 Synonyms & Historicals
Proteoglycans .
Proteoglycan .
Proteoglycan Type H .
Glycoproteins which have a very high polysaccharide content. .
Biglycan .
Bone Proteoglycan I .
Proteoglycan S1 .
A small leucine-rich proteoglycan found in a variety of tissues including CAPILLARY ENDOTHELIUM; SKELETAL MUSCLE; CARTILAGE; BONE; and TENDONS. The protein contains two glycosaminoglycan chains and is similar in structure to DECORIN. .
Lumican .
Lumican Proteoglycan .
A small leucine-rich proteoglycan that contains 10 tandem leucine repeats and four N-linked sites within the leucine repeat region that may be substituted with KERATAN SULFATE. These properties and its horseshoe shape allow it to mediate interactions among COLLAGEN molecules within fibrils. It is expressed in most mesenchymal tissues as well as the CORNEA, where it functions to maintain transparency. .
Small Leucine-Rich Proteoglycans .
SLRP Proteoglycans .
Small Leucine-Rich Repeat Proteoglycan .
Small Leucine-Rich Repeat Proteoglycans .
Small Leucine Rich Proteoglycans .
Small Leucine Rich Repeat Proteoglycan .
Small Leucine Rich Repeat Proteoglycans .
A proteoglycan family (SLRPs) that is defined by a central domain which consists of a variable number of repeats of the motif LXXLxLXXNxL, where L may be LEUCINE; ISOLEUCINE; VALINE; or other hydrophobic amino acids. The N-terminal contains four conserved CYSTEINE residues and may be modified depending on function. SLRPs provide structural support to the EXTRACELLULAR MATRIX and are critical for regulating its assembly and dynamics at CELL-MATRIX JUNCTIONS. .
Decorin .
Bone Proteoglycan II .
Proteoglycan II, Bone .
A small leucine-rich proteoglycan that interacts with FIBRILLAR COLLAGENS and modifies the EXTRACELLULAR MATRIX structure of CONNECTIVE TISSUE. Decorin has also been shown to play additional roles in the regulation of cellular responses to GROWTH FACTORS. The protein contains a single glycosaminoglycan chain and is similar in structure to BIGLYCAN. .
Heparan Sulfate Proteoglycans .
Proteoheparan Sulfate .
Proteoglycan, Heparan Sulfate .
Proteoglycans, Heparan Sulfate .
Sulfate Proteoglycans, Heparan .
Heparan Sulfate Proteoglycan .
HSPG 21392 .
Ubiquitous macromolecules associated with the cell surface and extracellular matrix of a wide range of cells of vertebrate and invertebrate tissues. They are essential cofactors in cell-matrix adhesion processes, in cell-cell recognition systems, and in receptor-growth factor interactions. (From Cancer Metastasis Rev 1996; 15(2): 177-86; Hepatology 1996; 24(3): 524-32) .
