Lumican, a member of the small interstitial proteoglycan gene (SIPG) family, is a keratan sulfate proteoglycan present in large quantities in the corneal stroma and in interstitial collagenous matrices of the heart, aorta, skeletal muscle (Hassell et al. 1993), skin (Chakravarti et al. submitted), and intervertebral discs (B. Johnstone, personal communication). Like decorin, another SIPG member, lumican also interacts with collagen and limits growth of fibrils in diameter (Rada et al. 1993… CONTINUE READING
