Thrombospondin is a versatile multifunctional glycoprotein with a widespread tissue distribution. By virtue of its remarkable affinity for multiple macromolecules, it serves as a focus of surface assembly of multiprotein complexes, and thus plays a role in aggregation as well as modulating proteolytic events in non-fibrin-containing environments.
