Secondry Information

Presence in other biological fluids/tissue/cells serum, urine, cerebrospinal fluid
Protein Function Involved in phagocytosis, angiogenesis, atherosclerosis, tissue remodeling, blood coagulation processes and haemostasis regulation; modulate function as a cell adhesion protein in the connection of smooth muscles to fibers in arteries; can inhibit enzymes engaged in coagulation processes such as prothrombinase, factor X, and VIIa; expressed on the acrosomal cap of sperm and helps in fusion with oocyte
Biochemical Properties Exhibits specificity for 3D structure of phosphatidyl serine and high affinity for membrane binding sites, similar to factors VIII and V; lactadherin recognizes many more binding sites on membranes that are highly curved as opposed to the more planar membranes found in larger vesicles
Significance in milk Lines phospholipid bilayer of MFG and stabilises the bilipid structure;
PTMs Glycosylated; contained galactose, N-acetylgalactosamine and fucose, and which was 0- linked to Ser9 in PAS-6 and to Thr16 in PAS-7 as detected in bovine MFG; N and O-glycosylated depending on different isoforms found in mouse mammary gland
Site(s) of PTM(s)

N-glycosylation, O-glycosylation,
