EF-hand, extracellular calcium-binding (EC) motif, found in secreted protein acidic and rich in cysteine (SPARC)-like proteins
The SPARC protein family represents a diverse group of proteins that share a follistatin-like (FS) domain and an extracellular calcium-binding (EC) domain with two EF-hand motifs. It includes SPARC (for secreted protein acidic and rich in cysteine, also termed osteonectin/ON, or basement-membrane protein 40/BM-40), SPARC-like protein 1 (for secreted protein, acidic and rich in cysteines-like 1/ SPARCL1, also termed high endothelial venule protein/Hevi, or MAST 9, or SC-1, or RAGS-1, or QR1, or ECM 2), testicans 1, 2, and 3 (also termed SPARC/osteonectin, CWCV, and Kazal-like domains proteoglycans, or SPOCK), secreted modular calcium-binding protein SMOC-1 (also termed SPARC-related modular calcium-binding protein 1) and SMOC-2 (also termed SPARC-related modular calcium-binding protein 2, or smooth muscle-associated protein 2/SMAP-2), follistatin-related protein 1 (FRP-1, also termed follistatin-like protein 1/fstl-1, TSC-36/Flik, TGF-beta inducible protein). The SPARC proteins have been implicated in modulating cell interaction with the extracellular milieu, including regulation of extracellular matrix assembly and deposition, counter-adhesion, effects on extracellular protease activity, and modulation of growth factor/cytokine signaling pathways, as well as in development and disease.
