Contents Include:

-Heparan sulfate proteoglycans
Objectives and Outline of the Thesis
-4.1 Manuscript 1: Cellular uptake of mammalian heparanase precursor involves low density lipoprotein receptor-related proteins, mannose-6-phosphate receptors and heparan sulfate proteoglycans
-4.2 Manuscript 2: Low density lipoprotein receptor-related proteins and heparan sulfate proteoglycans form a high affinity dual receptor-complex involved in the (re)capture of both the precursor and mature form of mammalian heparanase
-4.3 Manuscript 3: Human heparanase-2 compared with human heparanase-1: heparan sulfate-degrading activity, proteolytic processing and trafficking
-4.4 Manuscript 4: Llama heavy-chain antibodies specific for human heparanase-1: effects on heparanase-1 uptake and activation by cells
General Discussion and Future Prospects
