lam·i·nin

(lam'i-nin),
A large, multimeric glycoprotein component of the basement membrane, particularly the lamina lucida; it has binding sites for integrins, type IV collagen, and heparan sulfate. It is a major protein component of the lamina lucida of the renal glomerulus.

laminin

(lăm′ə-nĭn)
n.
Any of a family of glycoproteins that are components of the basement membrane and mediate cell proliferation, migration, differentiation, and adhesion.

laminin

Laminin

laminin

a hetero-trimeric linking protein of the BASAL LAMINA. Laminin induces ADHESION and the spreading of many cell types, promotes CHEMOTAXIS and CELL DIFFERENTIATION and the outgrowth of NEURITES in culture.
