The biology of basement membrane proteoglycans extends far beyond the original notion of anionic filters. These complex molecules have dual roles as structural constituents of basement membranes and functional regulators of several growth-factor signalling pathways. As such, they are involved in angiogenesis and, consequently, in tumour progression and their partial or total absence causes several congenital defects that affect the musculoskeletal, cardiovascular and nervous systems.

TLDR
Proteoglycans in the basement membrane are poised to exert diverse effects on the cells intimately associated with basement membranes, permitting them to interact with a broad spectrum of targets, including growth factors, cytokines, chemokines, and morphogens. Expand
The nature and biology of basement membranes.
TLDR
Developmental, structural and biochemical aspects of basement membranes are addressed and some of the pathogenetic mechanisms causing diseases linked to abnormal basement membrane diseases are discussed. Expand
Molecular organization of the basement membrane zone.
TLDR
Understanding the composition and structure of the basement membrane provides insight into the pathophysiology of inherited blistering disorders and acquired bullous diseases, such as the pemphigoid group of autoimmune diseases and epidermolysis bullosa acquisita. Expand
Basement membrane proteoglycans: Modulators Par Excellence of cancer growth and angiogenesis
TLDR
The functional roles of the major heparan sulfate proteoglycans from basement membrane zones: perlecan, agrin and collagen XVIII, and on their roles in modulating cancer growth and angiogenesis are focused on. Expand
Basement membranes in development and disease.
TLDR
This review discusses recent findings regarding the structure of the BM and its roles in mediating the normal development of the embryo, and examines congenital diseases affecting the BM which impact embryonic development and health in later life. Expand
Heparan sulphate proteoglycans fine-tune mammalian physiology
TLDR
Heparan sulphate proteoglycans reside on the plasma membrane of all animal cells studied so far and are a major component of extracellular matrices, which affects metabolism, transport, information transfer, support and regulation in all organ systems. Expand

TLDR
The proteoglycan superfamily now contains more than 30 full-time molecules that fulfill a variety of biological functions and additional roles, derived from studies of mutant animals, indicate that certain proteoglycans are essential to life whereas others might be redundant. Expand
Basement membrane assembly, stability and activities observed through a developmental lens.
TLDR
Mutagenesis in vertebrate embryos and embryoid bodies have led to revisions of this model, providing evidence that laminins are essential for the formation of an initial polymeric scaffold of cell-attached matrix which matures in stability, ligand diversity, and functional complexity as additional matrix components are integrated into the scaffold.

New insights into the roles of agrin
TLDR
The heparan sulphate proteoglycan agrin is expressed as several isoforms in various tissues and has recently also been implicated in the formation of the immunological synapse, the organization of the cytoskeleton and the amelioration of function in diseased muscle. Expand
New functional roles for non-collagenous domains of basement membrane collagens
TLDR
The non-collagenous C-terminal fragment NC1 of collagen IV, XV and XVIII have been recently highlighted in the literature because of their potential in reducing angiogenesis and tumorigenesis, but it is clear that their biological functions are not limited to these processes. Expand
Perlecan Maintains the Integrity of Cartilage and Some Basement Membranes
TLDR
The chondrodysplasia is characterized by a reduction of the fibrillar collagen network, shortened collagen fibers, and elevated expression of cartilage extracellular matrix genes, suggesting that perlecan protects cartilageextracllular matrix from degradation. Expand
