Domain

Chondroitin sulphate attachment (IPR010555)

Short name: Chon_Sulph_att

Domain relationships

None.

Description

This family represents the chondroitin sulphate attachment domain of vertebrate neural transmembrane proteoglycans that contain EGF modules. Evidence has been accumulated to support the idea that neural proteoglycans are involved in various cellular events including mitogenesis, differentiation, axonal outgrowth and synaptogenesis [PMID: 9321696]. This domain contains several potential sites of chondroitin sulphate attachment, as well as potential sites of N-linked glycosylation [PMID: 9950058].
