  • Abstract. Thrombospondins are a family of extracellular, adhesive proteins that are widely expressed in vertebrates. Five distinct gene products, designated thrombospondin-1 through -4 and cartilage oligomeric matrix protein (COMP), have been identified. With the exception of thrombospondin-4, the structure and location of thrombospondin genes have been determined in the human and/or mouse genomes. In this study, the structure and location of the murine thrombospondin-4 gene and the location of… CONTINUE READING
