FUNCTION: [Summary is not available for the mouse gene. This summary is for the human ortholog.] The protein encoded by this gene belongs to the thrombospondin family. It is a disulfide-linked homotrimeric glycoprotein that mediates cell-to-cell and cell-to-matrix interactions. This protein has been shown to function as a potent inhibitor of tumor growth and angiogenesis. Studies of the mouse counterpart suggest that this protein may modulate the cell surface properties of mesenchymal cells and be involved in cell adhesion and migration. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
PHENOTYPE: Mice homozygous for a knock-out allele display premature death, abnormal tails, marked structural and functional abnormalities in a variety of connective tissues including skin, tendon, bone, and blood vessels, accelerated wound healing, and enhanced susceptibility to experimental skin tumors.
