A novel form of the membrane protein CD147 that contains an extra Ig-like domain and interacts homophilically
Background: CD147 is a broadly distributed integral membrane glycoprotein with two g-like domains implicated in a wide range of functions. It is associated at the cell surface with the monocarboxylate transporters MCT1 and 4 but interactions of the extracellular region have not been characterised. Results: We report the characterisation of a form of CD147 with an additional membrane-distal Ig-like domain. In contrast to the two domain form, this three domain form of CD147 interacts homophilic...Expand abstract
