Latent TGF-beta Binding Protein

The latent TGF-beta binding proteins (LTBP) are a family of carrier proteins.

LTBP is a family of secreted multidomain proteins that were originally identified by their association with the latent form of transforming growth factors. They interact with a variety of extracellular matrix proteins and may play a role in the regulation of TGF beta bioavailability.

Famous quotes containing the words protein, binding and/or latent:

    Firm-style bean curd insoles cushion feet, absorb perspiration and provide more protein than meat or fish innersoles of twice the weight. Tofu compresses with use, becoming more pungent and flavorful. May be removed when not in use to dry or marinate. Innersoles are ready to eat after 1,200 miles of wear. Each pair provides adult protein requirement for 2 meals. Insoles are sized large to allow for snacks. Recipe booklet included.
    Alfred Gingold, U.S. humorist. Items From Our Catalogue, “Tofu Innersoles,” Avon Books (1982)

    Hate traps us by binding us too tightly to our adversary.
    Milan Kundera (b. 1929)

    Perhaps having built a barricade when you’re sixteen provides you with a sort of safety rail. If you’ve once taken part in building one, even inadvertently, doesn’t its usually latent image reappear like a warning signal whenever you’re tempted to join the police, or support any manifestation of Law and Order?
    Jean Genet (1910–1986)
