Fibronectin regulates Wnt7a signaling and satellite cell expansion.
Ottawa, Canada. In Cell Stem Cell, 2013
We found that Syndecan-4 (Sdc4) and Frizzled-7 (Fzd7) form a coreceptor complex in satellite cells and that binding of the ECM glycoprotein Fibronectin (FN) to Sdc4 stimulates the ability of Wnt7a to induce the symmetric expansion of satellite stem cells.
