Thrombospondin 2, also known as THBS2 and TSP2, is a secreted glycoprotein with a predicted molecular weight of 130 kDa. THBS2 mediates cell-to-cell and cell-to-matrix interactions, and can be expressed together with CA 19-9 in patients with early pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma.

thrombospondin 2 , TSP2
The protein encoded by this gene belongs to the thrombospondin family. It is a disulfide-linked homotrimeric glycoprotein that mediates cell-to-cell and cell-to-matrix interactions. This protein has been shown to function as a potent inhibitor of tumor growth and angiogenesis. Studies of the mouse counterpart suggest that this protein may modulate the cell surface properties of mesenchymal cells and be involved in cell adhesion and migration. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
