Characterization of a functional hyaluronan-binding domain from the human CD44 molecule expressed in Escherichia coli.

Abstract:

The CD44 molecule is a widely distributed cell surface receptor for the extracellular matrix glycosaminoglycan hyaluronan. The ligand-binding site which is located in the membrane distal portion of the molecule encompasses a region of approximately 100 amino acids termed the Link domain, a structural unit that is conserved among members of the Hyaladherin superfamily which includes cartilage link protein, aggrecan, and tumor necrosis factor-stimulated gene-6 (TSG-6). In contrast to these othe...
