  Domain Name: Ig3_Perlecan_like
Third immunoglobulin (Ig)-like domain found in Perlecan and similar proteins. Ig3_Perlecan_like: domain similar to the third immunoglobulin (Ig)-like domain found in Perlecan. Perlecan is a large multi-domain heparin sulfate proteoglycan, important in tissue development and organogenesis. Perlecan can be represented as 5 major portions; its fourth major portion (domain IV) is a tandem repeat of immunoglobulin-like domains (Ig2-Ig15), which can vary in size due to alternative splicing. Perlecan binds many cellular and extracellular ligands. Its domain IV region has many binding sites. Some of these have been mapped at the level of individual Ig-like domains, including a site restricted to the Ig5 domain for heparin/sulfatide, a site restricted to the Ig3 domain for nidogen-1 and nidogen-2, a site restricted to Ig4-5 for fibronectin, and sites restricted to Ig2 and to Ig13-15 for fibulin-2.
No pairwise interactions are available for this conserved domain.
