Protein Feature View of PDB entries mapped to a UniProtKB sequence  

Number of PDB entries for Q9R0G6: 5
May play a role in the structural integrity of cartilage via its interaction with other extracellular matrix proteins such as the collagens and fibronectin. Can mediate the interaction of chondrocytes with the cartilage extracellular matrix through interaction with cell surface integrin receptors. Could play a role in the pathogenesis of osteoarthritis. Potent suppressor of apoptosis in both primary chondrocytes and transformed cells. Suppresses apoptosis by blocking the activation of caspase-3 and by inducing the IAP family of survival proteins (BIRC3, BIRC2, BIRC5 and XIAP). Essential for maintaining a vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMCs) contractile/differentiated phenotype under physiological and pathological stimuli. Maintains this phenotype of VSMCs by interacting with ITGA7. (data source: UniProt  )
Subunit structure
Pentamer; disulfide-linked. Exists in a more compact conformation in the presence of calcium and shows a more extended conformation in the absence of calcium. Interacts with ITGB3, ITGA5 and FN1. Binding to FN1 requires the presence of divalent cations (Ca(2+), Mg(2+) or Mn(2+)). The greatest amount of binding is seen in the presence of Mn(2+). Interacts with MATN1, MATN3, MATN4 and ACAN. Binds heparin, heparan sulfate and chondroitin sulfate. EDTA dimishes significantly its binding to ACAN and abolishes its binding to MATN3, MATN4 and chondroitin sulfate. Interacts with collagen I, II and IX and interaction with these collagens is dependent on the presence of zinc ions. Interacts with ADAMTS12. Interacts with ITGA7. (data source: UniProt  )
Each of the eight TSP type-3 repeats binds two calcium ions. The TSP C-terminal domain binds three calcium ions. (data source: UniProt  )

Data origin/color codes
The vertical color bar on the left side indicates data provenance.
Data in green originates from UniProtKB  
Data in yellow originates from Pfam  , by interacting with the HMMER3 web site  
Data in orange originates from the SCOP   (version 1.75) and SCOPe   (version 2.04) classifications.
Data in grey has been calculated using BioJava  . Protein disorder predictions are based on JRONN (Troshin, P. and Barton, G. J. unpublished), a Java implementation of RONN  
  • Red: potentially disorderd region
  • Blue: probably ordered region.
Hydropathy has been calculated using a sliding window of 15 residues and summing up scores from standard hydrophobicity tables.
  • Red: hydrophobic
  • Blue: hydrophilic.
Data in lilac represent the genomic exon structure projected onto the UniProt sequence.
Data in blue originates from PDB
  • Secstruc: Secondary structure projected from representative PDB entries onto the UniProt sequence.
Data in red indicates combined ranges of Homology Models from SBKB   and the Protein Model Portal
