Extracellular Matrix & Adhesion Molecules
The extracellular matrix (ECM) is a complex network
of different combinations of collagens, proteoglycans, hyaluronic acid, laminin,
fibronectin, and many other glycoproteins, including proteolytic enzymes
involved in degradation and remodeling of the extracellular matrix.
Extracellular matrix (ECM) exists in two forms: interstitial matrix that fills
in the intercellular space and the more specialized basement membrane, which is
a thin sheet of extracellular matrix underlying the epithelium. The
Extracellular Matrix and Cell Adhesion PCR Arrays are designed to determine the
gene expression profile of the molecules involved in cell-to-cell and
cell-to-matrix interactions. See details here.
