General information

  • Laminin-15 complex is an heterotrimer composed of three chains (alpha-5/beta-2/gamma-3) which are bound to each other by disulfide bonds into a cross-shaped molecule comprising one long and three short arms with globules at each end. [1]
  • Function: may be involved in the regulation of tumor cell migration. [2]
