Examples

  • The laminins are the primary extracellular matrix molecules to be observed in the developing embryo and in mature adult differentiated tissues.

  • The laminins are a family of extracellular matrix glycoproteins localized in the basement membrane that separates epithelial cells from the underlying somatic tissues.

  • The laminins are the primary extracellular matrix molecules to be observed in the developing embryo and have potent biological activities.

    CreationWiki - Recent changes [en]

  • The laminins are large glycoproteins comprising three different disulphide-bonded chains.

  • There may be more isoforms existent in mammalian tissues but since isolating most of the laminins from the rest of the extracellular matrix is so difficult, progress has been slow [4].

  • It is no surprise that both laminins 332 and 511 (as well as some others) are critical to the process of wound healing and cell migration [8].

    CreationWiki - Recent changes [en]

  • The expression of laminin production is controlled by growth hormone and laminins are involved in directing cells to the correct place during the body's response to injury.

  • However, these laminins also play key roles as regulators of keratinocyte migration in wound healing, tumor genesis, and modulate skin appendage development.

  • There are also a variety of membrane receptors that bind LG domain of laminins: syndacans, a-dystroglycan, and integrins.

    CreationWiki - Recent changes [en]

  • Since integrin receptors are also essential to the signaling action of laminins in the basement membrane, any mutation in these receptors causes both serious skin and hair problems.
