Microfibril-associated glycoprotein (IPR008673)

Short name: MAGP

Family relationships



This family consists of several mammalian microfibril-associated glycoprotein (MAGP) 1 and 2 proteins. MAGP1 and 2 are components of elastic fibres. MAGP-1 has been proposed to bind a C-terminal region of tropoelastin, the soluble precursor of elastin. MAGP-2 was found to interact with fibrillin-1 and -2, as well as fibulin-1, another component of elastic fibres. This suggests that MAGP-2 may be important in the assembly of microfibrils [PMID: 12122015].
