    Arch Biochem Biophys 374:66-72. 2000
    ..We now report that the glycosaminoglycan chains of syndecan-4 bind recombinant HepII and it is incorporated into forming focal adhesions...

    Department of Cell Biology, University of Alabama at Birmingham, Birmingham, AL 35294 0019, USA
    Curr Opin Cell Biol 13:578-83. 2001
    ..This is consistent with recent in vitro data indicating a need for signaling via syndecan-4 for focal adhesion formation, and reports that overexpression of proteins that bind syndecan-4 can modify cell adhesion and migration...
