Fibulin-1 promotes ADAMTS1-mediated cleavage of versican.
Fibulin-1 deficient embryonic cardiac ventricles have reduced levels of the 70-kDa amino-terminal fragment of versican V1 containing a carboxy terminal DPEAAE sequence.
Fibulin-1 deficient embryonic cardiac ventricles have increased trabecular cardiomyocyte proliferation.
Fibulin-1 deficient embryonic cardiac ventricles have increased levels of ErbB2 and Erk1/2 activation.
Hearts from versicanhdf/hdf embryos lack versican V0/V1 and show a lack of trabeculae.
