decorin

A small proteoglycan, 90-140 kD, of the extracellular matrix, so-called because it 'decorates' collagen fibres. The core protein has a mass of approximately 42 kD and is very similar to the core protein of biglycan and fibromodulin. All three have highly conserved sequences containing 10 internal homologous repeats of approximately 25 amino acids with leucine-rich motifs. Decorin has one glycosaminoglycan chain, either chondroitin sulphate or dermatan sulphate and N-linked oligosaccharides. ...

Decorin

Decorin is a protein that in humans is encoded by the DCN gene. Decorin is a proteoglycan that is on average 90 - 140 kilodaltons (kD) in molecular weight. It belongs to the small leucine-rich proteoglycan (SLRP) family and consists of a protein core containing leucine repeats with a glycosaminoglycan (GAG) chain consisting of either chondroitin s...
