  Domain Name: Link_domain_HAPLN_mo
Link_domain_HAPLN_module_1; this link domain is found in the first link module of proteins similar to the vertebrate HAPLN (hyaluronan/HA and proteoglycan binding link) protein family which includes cartilage link protein. The link domain is a HA-binding domain. HAPLNs contain two contiguous link modules. Both link modules of cartilage link protein are involved in interaction with HA. In cartilage, a chondroitin sulfate proteoglycan core protein (CSPG) aggrecan forms cartilage link protein stabilized aggregates with HA. These aggregates contribute to the tissue's load bearing properties. Aggregates with other CSPGs substituting for aggregan may contribute to the structural integrity of many different tissues. Members of the vertebrate HAPLN gene family are physically linked adjacent to CSPG genes.
No pairwise interactions are available for this conserved domain.
