General information

  • ECM1 inhibits MMP9 proteolytic activity. [1]
  • Both the ECM1a and ECM1b isoforms are able to stimulate blood vessel endothelial cell proliferation, and to promote angiogenesis. [2]
  • ECM1b variant lacks exon 7 and the translated protein is 415 amino acids long. [1]
  • Extracellular matrix protein 1, an approximately 85-kDa glycoprotein with broad tissue distribution, harbors mutations in lipoid proteinosis, a heritable disease characterized by reduplication of basement membranes and hyalinization of dermis, associated with neurologic disorders. [1]
  • Expression of ECM1 in human skin is decreased by age and increased upon ultraviolet exposure. [3]
