Expression and immune function of tenascin-C.
Our immune system is designed to protect us from danger. Upon pathogen invasion and tissue injury, activation of both innate and adaptive immunity enables us to combat infection and to repair tissue damage. Tenascin-C is a large, extracellular matrix glycoprotein that has a very tightly controlled pattern of expression. Little or no tenascin-C is expressed in most healthy adult tissues; however, it is rapidly and transiently induced at sites of tissue injury and infection. Persistent tenascin...Expand abstract
