Microfibrillar associated protein 5
MAGP-2, Microfibril-associated glycoprotein-2
This gene encodes a 25-kD microfibril-associated glycoprotein which is rich in serine and threonine residues. It lacks a hydrophobic carboxyl terminus and proline-, glutamine-, and tyrosine-rich regions, which are characteristics of a related 31-kDa microfibril-associated glycoprotein (MFAP2). The close similarity between these two proteins is confined to a central region of 60 aa where precise alignment of 7 cysteine residues occurs. The structural differences suggest that this encoded protein has some functions that are distinct from those of MFAP2. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008] (from

Through whole-exome sequencing of affected members in a large TAAD-affected family, we identified the c.472C>T (p.Arg158(∗)) nonsense mutation in MFAP5 encoding the extracellular matrix component MAGP-2.

Microfibril-associated glycoprotein 2 (MAGP2) is a secreted protein associated with multiple cellular activities including the organization of elastic fibers in the extracellular matrix (ECM), angiogenesis, as well as regulating Notch and integrin signaling.
