Matrilin 2

matrilin-2, MATN2
This gene encodes a member of the von Willebrand factor A domain containing protein family. This family of proteins is thought to be involved in the formation of filamentous networks in the extracellular matrices of various tissues. This protein contains five von Willebrand factor A domains. The specific function of this gene has not yet been determined. Two transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008] (from NCBI)

DNA Methylation Analysis of Human Trabecular Meshwork Cells During Dexamethasone Stimulation.
Ebihara et al., In Invest Ophthalmol Vis Sci, Jun 2015
RESULTS: After DEX stimulation, we found demethylated cytosine-phosphate-guanine (CpG) sites within the FKBP5, ZBTB16, and SCNN1A gene promoter regions with increases of corresponding gene expression for all three TM batches, and methylated CpG sites within the ARSI, HIC1, GREM2, and MATN2 gene promoter regions with decreases of corresponding of gene expression for all three batches.
Matrilin-2, an extracellular adaptor protein, is needed for the regeneration of muscle, nerve and other tissues.

The corneal epithelial basement membrane: structure, function, and disease.
Wilson et al., Cleveland, United States. In Invest Ophthalmol Vis Sci, 2013
Basement membranes are composed of a diverse assemblage of extracellular molecules, some of which are likely specific to the tissue where they function; but in general they are composed of four primary components--collagens, laminins, heparan sulfate proteoglycans, and nidogens--in addition to other components such as thrombospondin-1, matrilin-2, and matrilin-4 and even fibronectin in some BM.
