A comprehensive list of domains in extracellular mosaic proteins is presented. About 40 domains were distinguished by consensus patterns. A subsequent sequence database search recognized these domains in more than 200 extracellular proteins. The results point to a structural network, which may also represent the molecular basis for a complex coordination of various functions within the world of extracellular proteins. 
Epidermal growth factor-like modules
Numerous copies of domains, or modules, with similarity recognizable from sequence analysis, are being found in a wide variety of different proteins. New information on the structure and distributionExpand

TLDR
The present minireview is focused on some general aspects of the evolution of modular proteins, the three-dimensional structure of domains and the ways in which these interact in a multidomain protein. Expand

TLDR
Using a variety of homology search methods and multiple alignments, a new extracellular module was identified in agrin, enterokinase, and a 63‐kDa sea urchin sperm protein, which contain all O‐glycosidiclinked carbohydrates such as heparan sulfate that contribute considerably to their molecular masses.

Modular arrangement of proteins as inferred from analysis of homology
TLDR
An automatic method to identify protein domains from sequence comparisons is developed and 2 examples of previously unrecognized domain arrangements discovered with the help of, ProDom are provided. Expand

This review summarises facts and hypotheses about the evolution of domains in multi-domain proteins and protein complexes, and the tools and data resources available to study them. Expand
The modular architecture of vertebrate collagens

  • 1992
TLDR
This analysis provides an overview of homologies of collagen domains and reveals two new relationships: a module common to type V, IX, XI, and XII collagens was found to be homologous to the heparin binding domain of thrombospondin; and the modular architecture of a human type VII collagen fragment was identified. Expand
Mobile modules and motifs
Abstract More recently evolved (modern) proteins are often composed of a number of different, sometimes repeated, structural and functional units. These modules are most widespread among eukaryoticExpand

TLDR
Several important functions of laminin have been assigned to individual domains in either the short arms or terminal regions of the long arm, including the function of chain assembly. Expand
Structure and expression of fibulin-2, a novel extracellular matrix protein with multiple EGF-like repeats and consensus motifs for calcium binding
TLDR
A new protein, fibulin-2, was predicted from sequence analysis of cDNA clones obtained from a mouse fibroblast library and produced and secreted by human cell clones as a disulfide-bonded trimer and showed no sequence homology to other known proteins. Expand

TLDR
Extracellular matrices are organized networks of diverse macromolecules, secreted and deposited in the vicinity of cells, which interact with each other and with cell‐surface receptors through specific binding sites. Expand

TLDR
The proposed model of cytotactin specifies the orientation of the polypeptides, the localization of interchain disulfide bonds, the structural elements constituting the thin and thick segments (EGFL repeats and type III repeats, respectively), the terminal fibrinogen-like nodular region, and the relative location of the cell-binding region.
