Summaries for PLGLB2 Gene

GeneCards Summary for PLGLB2 Gene

PLGLB2 (Plasminogen-Like B2) is a Protein Coding gene. An important paralog of this gene is PLGLB1.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for PLGLB2 Gene

  • May bind noncovalently to lysine binding sites present in the kringle structures of plasminogen. This may interfere with the binding of fibrin or alpha-2-antiplasmin to plasminogen and may result in the localization of activity at sites necessary for extracellular matrix destruction.
