Fibronectin assembly and function: A multi-dimensional view

Abstract:

The extra cellularmatrix (ECM) acts not only as a structural support or scaffold but also plays an essential role in regulating cellular activities. Fibronectin (FN) is locally assembled by cells into a complex three-dimensional matrix on the cell surface where it controls a wide variety of cell functions. Its assembly is essential during development and tissue repair, as well as during physiological tissue homeostasis. This chapter reviews the research that examines the mechanisms of FN matr...
