Abstract

Much has been learned recently by experimental manipulation of the structure of CD44 and assessment of the resulting functions. However, even greater structural variation is naturally introduced by CD44-bearing cells. A structural model is now available for the portion of CD44 that recognizes hyaluronan, but it is clear that all domains of the molecule influence CD44 functions.
