Chemical Heparan Sulfate Proteoglycans

Name Heparan Sulfate Proteoglycans
Equivalent Terms Heparan Sulfate Proteoglycan | HSPG | Proteoglycan, Heparan Sulfate | Proteoglycans, Heparan Sulfate | Proteoheparan Sulfate | Sulfate Proteoglycans, Heparan
Definition 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)
