TG2, a novel extracellular protein with multiple functions

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

TG2 is multifunctional enzyme which can be secreted to the cell surface by an unknown mechanism where its Ca(2+)-dependent transamidase activity is implicated in a number of events important to cell behaviour. However, this activity may only be transient due to the oxidation of the enzyme in the extracellular environment including its reaction with NO probably accounting for its many other roles, which are transamidation independent. In this review, we discuss the novel roles of TG2 at the cell surface and in the ECM acting either as a transamidating enzyme or as an extracellular scaffold protein involved in cell adhesion. Such roles include its ability to act as an FN co-receptor for ß integrins or in a heterocomplex with FN interacting with the cell surface heparan sulphate proteoglycan syndecan-4 leading to activation of PKCa. These different properties of TG2 involve this protein in various physiological processes, which if not regulated appropriately can also lead to its involvement in a number of diseases. These include metastatic cancer, tissue fibrosis and coeliac disease, thus increasing its attractiveness as both a therapeutic target and diagnostic marker.
