Laminin, beta 3

The product encoded by this gene is a laminin that belongs to a family of basement membrane proteins. This protein is a beta subunit laminin, which together with an alpha and a gamma subunit, forms laminin-5. Mutations in this gene cause epidermolysis bullosa junctional Herlitz type, and generalized atrophic benign epidermolysis bullosa, diseases that are characterized by blistering of the skin. Multiple alternatively spliced transcript variants that encode the same protein have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008] (from NCBI)
Papers on LAMB3
Polymerized laminin-332 matrix supports rapid and tight adhesion of keratinocytes, suppressing cell migration.
Miyazaki et al., Yokohama, Japan. In Plos One, 2011
Data show laminin-332 (alpha3ss3gamma2)(Lm332) matrix supported adhesion of keratinocytes much more strongly and stably than purified Lm332.
Aberrant up-regulation of LAMB3 and LAMC2 by promoter demethylation in gastric cancer.
Kim et al., Taej┼Ćn, South Korea. In Biochem Biophys Res Commun, 2011
These results suggest that epigenetic activation of LAMB3 and LAMC2 may play an important role in gastric carcinogenesis.
