Graphical View of Domain Structure for InterPro Entry



  • Q96CW9
  • The laminin N-terminal domain mediates 1:1 binding to NGL ligand with sub-micromolar affinity. Three NGL-binding loops mediate discrimination for LRRC4C/NGL1 among other NGLs by binding specifically to its LRR repeats. This specificity drives the sorting of a mixed population of molecules into discrete cell surface subdomains
  • Contains 3 laminin EGF-like domains.
  • Contains 1 laminin N-terminal domain.
