Fibronectin matrix assembly after spinal cord injury.
Miami, United States. In J Neurotrauma, 09 Jan 2015
UNLABELLED: After spinal cord injury (SCI), a fibrotic scar forms at the injury site that is best characterized by the accumulation of perivascular fibroblasts and deposition of the extracellular matrix protein fibronectin.
Extracellular matrix assembly: a multiscale deconstruction.
San Francisco, United States. In Nat Rev Mol Cell Biol, 31 Dec 2014
The molecules that are associated with the ECM of each tissue, including collagens, proteoglycans, laminins and fibronectin, and the manner in which they are assembled determine the structure and the organization of the resultant ECM.
Rigidity sensing and adaptation through regulation of integrin types.
London, United Kingdom. In Nat Mater, Jun 2014
Cell binding to fibronectin through either α5β1 integrins (constitutively expressed) or αvβ6 integrins (selectively expressed in cancer and development) adapts force generation, actin flow and integrin recruitment to rigidities associated with healthy or malignant tissue, respectively.

Burjassot, Spain. In Nutrients, Dec 2013
Extracellular matrix proteins are among those whose synthesis is known to be modulated by vitamin A. Retinoic acid, the main biologically active form of vitamin A, influences the expression of collagens, laminins, entactin, fibronectin, elastin and proteoglycans, which are the major components of the extracellular matrix.
