laminin


Also found in: Dictionary, Wikipedia.

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

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.

lam·i·nin

(LN) (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.
