The glypicans compose a family of glycosylphosphatidylinositol (GPI)-anchored heparan sulfate proteoglycans that play a role in the control of cell division and growth regulation. So far, six members (GPC 1-6) of this family are known in vertebrates. The rat glypican gene 3 (Gpc3) was previously assigned to chromosome Xq36 (Shen et al., 1997). Using standard and radiation cell hybrids, we localized the five other rat glypican genes. Copyright (C) 2001 S. Karger AG, Basel.
