Cryptic domains of tenascin-C differentially control fibronectin fibrillogenesis.
The three-dimensional organization of the ubiquitous extracellular matrix glycoprotein fibronectin regulates cell fate and morphogenesis during development; in particular tubule formation that constitutes the vasculature, lung and kidney. Tenascin-C is a matrix protein with a restricted expression pattern; it is specifically up-regulated at sites of fibronectin fibril assembly during development and in remodeling adult tissues. Here we demonstrate that specific domains of tenascin-C inhibit f...Expand abstract
