This book describes the functional properties and the structural organization of the members of the thrombospondin gene family. These proteins comprise a family of extracellular calcium binding proteins that modulate cellular adhesion, migration and proliferation. Thrombospondin-1 has been shown to function during angiogenesis, wound healing and tumor cell metastasis.
