The matricellular protein thrombospondin-1 globally regulates cardiovascular function and responses to stress via CD47.

Abstract

Matricellular proteins play diverse roles in modulating cell behavior by engaging specific cell surface receptors and interacting with extracellular matrix proteins, secreted enzymes, and growth factors. Studies of such interactions involving thrombospondin-1 have revealed several physiological functions and roles in the pathogenesis of injury responses and… (More)
