Description…

Laminin is a complex glycoprotein, consisting of three different polypeptide chains (alpha, beta, gamma), which are bound to each other by disulfide bonds into a cross-shaped molecule comprising one long and three short arms with globules at each end. LMB2 is a subunit of laminin-3 (laminin-121 or S-laminin), laminin-4 (laminin-221 or S-merosin), laminin-7 (laminin-321 or KS-laminin), laminin-9 (laminin-421), laminin-11 (laminin-521), laminin-14 (laminin-423) and laminin-15 (laminin-523). LAMB2 binds to cells via a high affinity receptor and is thought to mediate the attachment, migration and organization of cells into tissues during embryonic development by interacting with other extracellular matrix components.
