According to recent research from Germany, "recently we identified a plasma serine protease with a high affinity to glycosaminoglycans like heparin or hyaluronic acid, termed hyaluronan-binding protease (HABP). Since glycosaminoglycans are found on cell surfaces and in the extracellular matrix a physiological role of this plasma protease in a pericellular environment was postulated. Here we studied the influence of HABP on the regulation of endothelial cell growth.
"We found that HABP efficiently prevented the basic fibroblast growth factor/epidermal growth factor...
