The proteoglycan superfamily now contains more than 30 full-time molecules that fulfill a variety of biological functions. Proteoglycans act as tissue organizers, influence cell growth and the maturation of specialized tissues, play a role as biological filters and modulate growth-factor activities, regulate collagen fibrillogenesis and skin tensile strength, affect tumor cell growth and invasion, and influence corneal transparency and neurite outgrowth. Additional roles, derived from studies…

Proteoglycans: from structural compounds to signaling molecules
TLDR
This review aims to summarize the multiple functions of proteoglycans with special emphasis on their intricate composition and the newly described signaling events in which these molecules play a key role.
The Biology of the Small Leucine-rich Proteoglycans
  • R. Iozzo
  • Biology
    The Journal of Biological Chemistry

TLDR
The focus is on the “functional network” created by these molecules in tissues, on genetic evidence for their functional roles during ontogeny, and on their activities as modulators of complex pathological processes such as fibrosis and cancer growth.
Proteoglycans of the extracellular matrix and growth control
TLDR
It is emphasized that the modulatory role of proteoglycans on cell proliferation cannot be separated from their participation in tissue organization in general, thereby explaining the diverse and sometimes contradictory reports on the effects of proteglycans in cell proliferation and differentiation.
Proteoglycans in prostate cancer
TLDR
Emerging studies suggest that cancers, including those of the prostate, use changes in proteoglycan composition and structure to promote their own survival, growth, and spread.
Developmental roles of heparan sulfate proteoglycans: a comparative review in Drosophila, mouse and human.
TLDR
Current evidence shows that at the very least, heparan sulfate proteoglycans need to be counted as legitimate elements of morphogenetic pathways that have been maintained throughout evolution as determinant mechanisms of pattern formation.
Biological Functions of the Small Leucine-rich Proteoglycans: From Genetics to Signal Transduction*
TLDR
This review is focused on novel biological functions of SLRP with special emphasis on their protein cores, newly described genetic diseases, and signaling events in which SLRPs play key functions.
Heparan sulfate proteoglycans
TLDR
The recent cloning of a single gene by several groups, together with biochemical studies, suggests that mammalian cells express primarily a single dominant heparanase enzyme, which is likely to be involved in fundamental biological phenomena, ranging from pregnancy, morphogenesis, and development to inflammation, angiogenic, and cancer metastasis.
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.

TLDR
These proteoglycans are tissue organizers, orienting and ordering collagen fibrils during ontogeny and in pathological processes such as wound healing, tissue repair, and tumor stroma formation, and three-dimensional modeling of their prototype protein core proposes a flexible, arch-shaped binding surface suitable for strong and distinctive interactions with ligand proteins.
Heparan sulfate proteoglycans of the cardiovascular system. Specific structures emerge but how is synthesis regulated?
TLDR
The current state of knowledge about the structure and the biosynthesis of HSPGs are outlined as well as interactions of these components with growth factors, enzymes, and protease inhibitors are described to provide a conceptual framework for elucidating the roles of H SPGs in other biologic systems.
Expression of human proteoglycan in Chinese hamster ovary cells inhibits cell proliferation
TLDR
Chinese hamster ovary cell lines expressing human decorin from a stably transfected complementary DNA construct form a more orderly monolayer and grow to a lower saturation density than control cells lacking decorin, revealing a novel growth inhibitory mechanism which may be related to contact inhibition of cell proliferation.
Cartilage proteoglycans: Structure and potential functions
TLDR
The largest in size and most abundant by weight is aggrecan, a proteoglycan that possesses over 100 chondroitin sulfate and keratan sulfate chains that provides cartilage with its osmotic properties, which give articular cartilage its ability to resist compressive loads.
Expression of Small Extracellular Chondroitin/Dermatan Sulfate Proteoglycans Is Differentially Regulated in Human Endothelial Cells*
TLDR
The results indicate that the regulatory elements controlling the expression of the small extracellular CS/DS PGs in human endothelial cells are different.

TLDR
The small proteoglycans are proposed to be tissue organisers, orienting and ordering the collagen fibrils--thus shaping the tissue at a molecular and ultimately macro level.
Negative regulation of transforming growth factor-β by the proteoglycan decorin
TLDR
The ability of decorin to bind transforming growth factor-β, an autocrine factor that stimulates the growth of Chinese hamster ovary cells, is reported, suggesting that decorin may be a component of a feedback system regulating cell growth.
