  • Latent TGF-beta binding protein-3 (LTBP-3) requires binding to TGF-beta for secretion FEBS LETTERS Chen, Y., Dabovic, B., Annes, J. P., Rifkin, D. B. 2002; 517 (1-3): 277-280


    Latent transforming growth factor-beta (TGF-beta) binding protein (LTBP)-1, which is easily secreted, has been shown to enhance the secretion of TGF-beta. Here we show that another member of the LTBP family, LTBP-3, is not secreted by several cell types, but secretion occurs after coexpression with TGF-beta. The secretion of LTBP-3 requires complexing of LTBP-3 with Cys33 of the TGF-beta propeptide.
