fibromodulin, Fmod
Fibromodulin is a member of a family of small interstitial proteoglycans, containing a central region composed of leucine-rich repeats with 4 keratan sulfate chains flanked by disulfide-bonded terminal domains. It may participate in the assembly of the extracellular matrix as it interacts with type I and type II collagen fibrils and inhibits fibrillogenesis in vitro. It may also regulate TGF-beta activities by sequestering TGF-beta into the extracellular matrix. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008] (from NCBI)

The small leucine-rich repeat proteoglycans in tissue repair and atherosclerosis.
Chakravarti et al., Lund, Sweden. In J Intern Med, Nov 2015
We focus on five SLRPs, decorin, biglycan, lumican, fibromodulin and PRELP, because these have been detected in atherosclerotic plaques or demonstrated to have a role in animal models of atherosclerosis.
