Abstract

The members of the Syndecan family of heparan sulfate proteoglycans play diverse roles in cell adhesion and cell communication by serving as co-receptors for both cell-signaling and extracellular matrix molecules. Syndecan-2 has been implicated in the formation of specialized membrane domains and functions as a direct link between the extracellular environment and the organization of the cortical cytoplasm. Recent studies have shown that syndecan-2 is required for angiogenesis, possibly by serving as a co-receptor for vascular endothelial growth factor, and cell-to-cell signaling during development of left-right asymmetry. This unique combination of activities suggests that syndecan-2 can function as a potential drug target for the development of multi-functional, anti-cancer therapeutics.
