  Domain Name: Link_domain_CD44_lik
This domain is a hyaluronan (HA)-binding domain. It is found in CD44 receptor and mediates adhesive interactions during inflammatory leukocyte homing and tumor metastasis. It also plays an important role in arteriogenesis. The functional HA-binding domain of CD44 is an extended domain comprised of a single link module flanked with N-and C- extensions. These extensions are essential for folding and for functional activity. This group also contains the cell surface retention sequence (CRS) binding protein-1 (CRSBP-1) and lymph vessel endothelial receptor-1 (LYVE-1). CRSBP-1 is a cell surface binding protein for the CRS motif of PDGF-BB (platelet-derived growth factor-BB) and is responsible for the cell surface retention of PDGF-BB in SSV-transformed cells. CRSBP-1 may play a role in autocrine regulation of cell growth mediated by CRS containing growth regulators. LYVE-1 is preferentially expressed on the lymphatic endothelium and is used as a molecular marker for the detection and characterization of lymphatic vessels in tumors.
No pairwise interactions are available for this conserved domain.
