SLITL2 / VASN: SLITL2 / VASN Protein | SLITL2 / VASN Antibody

SLITL2 / VASN Background

Vasorin is a typical type I membrane protein. It contains 1 EGF-like domain, 1 fibronectin type-III domain, 1 LRR (leucine-rich) repeats, 1 LRRCT domain and 1 LRRNT domain. Vasorin is predominantly expressed in vascular smooth muscle cells, and that its expression is developmentally regulated. vasorin It directly binds to transforming growth factor (TGF)-β and attenuates TGF-β signaling in vitro. This suggests that down-regulation of vasorin expression contributes to neointimal formation after vascular injury and that vasorin modulates cellular responses to pathological stimuli in the vessel wall.

SLITL2 / VASN protein expression

Tissue specificity

Expressed at highest levels in aorta, at intermediate levels in kidney and placenta and at lowest levels in brain, heart, liver, lung and skeletal muscle. Within the aorta, the strongest expression is found in the tunica media of the proximal ascending aorta, the descending thoracic aorta, the abdominal aorta and the coronary arteries. Within the kidney, expression is found in the interstitial cells.
