Collagen XVIII Collagen XVIII is a heparan sulfate containing proteoglycan containing eight potential glycosaminoglycan glycosylation sites (125) localized in endothelial and epithelial basement membranes. A C-terminal peptide of collagen XVIII showed both anti-angiogenic and anti-tumor properties (126, 127). These discoveries have brought much research attention to collagen type XVIII. However, the angiogenic effects are limited to blood vessel development in only the eye, as shown through collagen XVIII null mice (128).
