Gene Family: Matrilins (MATN)

matrilins: Marilins mediate interactions between macromolecular components of the extracellular matrix, e.g., collagens and proteoglycans. They are composed of von Willebrand factor type A and epidermal growth factor-like domains and the subunits oligomerize via coiled-coil domains. [Source: Paulsson and Wagener, 2017]
