Description

Mimecan, also known as osteoglycin, is a small leucine-rich proteoglycan (SLRP) that induces bone formation in conjunction with TGF-beta-1 or TGF-beta-2 [PMID: 2372374]. Its expression can be modulated by growth factors and cytokines. It may play roles in many biological processes, including cellular growth, angiogenesis, and inflammation [PMID: 15215744, PMID: 18979232, PMID: 12020827].
