  7. We speculate that an important role of lubricin in mediating interactions at the cartilage surface is to attach to the cartilage surface and provide a protective coating that maintains the contacting surfaces in a sterically repulsive state.

  8. Lubricin is transcribed, translated, and expressed by ocular surface epithelia. Lubricin presence significantly reduces friction between the cornea and conjunctiva.

  9. The objective was to evaluate the presence and distribution of the lubricating and anti-adhesion glycoprotein (show CD226 Proteins) lubricin and cells containing the contractile isoform smooth muscle alpha-actin (show ACTA2 Proteins) (SMA (show SMN1 Proteins)) in pseudomembranes around loose hip prostheses.

  2. The role of cell surface glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) during TGF-beta1 (show TGFB1 Proteins) stimulation of SZP/lubricin/PRG4 in superficial zone articular chondrocytes, was investigated.

  3. Lubricin expression in explant cartilage was also suppressed under hypoxia

  4. SZP production is dependent on the functional cytoskeleton, and Rho GTPases contribute to SZP accumulation by modulating the actions of TGFbeta (show TGFB1 Proteins).

  5. the combined treatment with TGF-beta1 (show TGFB1 Proteins) and BMP-7 (show BMP7 Proteins) or treatment first with TGF-beta1 (show TGFB1 Proteins) followed by BMP-7 (show BMP7 Proteins) was more effective than other treatment groups in both chondrogenic differentiation and SZP secretion.

Mouse (Murine) Proteoglycan 4 (PRG4) interaction partners

  6. mechanical motion may induce Prg4 expression in the superficial zone of articular cartilage

  7. changes in synovial fluid proteins and PRG4 concentrations upon joint loading are mediated by cells within the joint, and that these changes may be used as quantitative indicators for the intensity and duration of acute joint loading

  8. Lubricin is transcribed, translated, and expressed by ocular surface epithelia. Lubricin presence significantly reduces friction between the cornea and conjunctiva and its deficiency may play a role in promoting corneal damage.

Proteoglycan 4 (PRG4) Protein Profile

Protein Summary

The protein encoded by this gene is a large proteoglycan specifically synthesized by chondrocytes located at the surface of articular cartilage, and also by some synovial lining cells. This protein contains both chondroitin sulfate and keratan sulfate glycosaminoglycans. It functions as a boundary lubricant at the cartilage surface and contributes to the elastic absorption and energy dissipation of synovial fluid. Mutations in this gene result in camptodactyly-arthropathy-coxa vara-pericarditis syndrome. Multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene.
