A 200-amino acid long motif first recognized in von Willebrand Factor (type A module) has been found in components of the extracellular matrix, hemostasis, cellular adhesion, and immune defense mechanisms. At present the extracellular matrix is the predominant site of expression of type A modules since at least four non-fibrillar collagens and two non-collagenous proteins contain a variable number of modules ranging from one to twelve. The modules conform to a consensus motif made of short… CONTINUE READING
