Expression of stabilin-2, a novel fasciclin-like hyaluronan receptor protein, in murine sinusoidal endothelia, avascular tissues, and at solid/liquid interfaces

Stabilin-2, the hepatic hyaluronan receptor, has recently been cloned by us. Together with stabilin-1, stabilin-2 constitutes a novel family of fasciclin-like hyaluronan receptor homologues. Here, we analyzed expression of stabilin-2 (mStab-2) in a broad array of C57BL/6 mouse organs and tissues. While northern blot analysis showed positive expression of… CONTINUE READING
