22669977 opticin binds to collagen and thereby competitively inhibits endothelial cell interactions with collagen via alpha(1)beta(1) and alpha(2)beta(1) integrins, thereby preventing the strong adhesion that is required for proangiogenic signaling via these integrins.
22534113 VEGF and hypoxia could decrease opticin protein levels in the human retinal pigment epithelium secretome, and that opticin may be an enzymatic substrate for MMP-2.
