Increasing evidence suggests that tachykinins are involved in the control of pathophysiological states, such as inflammation. The precise localization of tachykinin receptors is of paramount importance in the search for their possible physiological and pathological role; in this study, therefore, we attempted to define cellular sites of substance P (NK-1R)(More)
Opticin, a novel member of the leucine-rich repeat (LRR) family, has been reported to bind to collagen fibrils. Many members of the LRR family of extracellular matrix proteins have been reported to bind to fibrillar collagen and regulate the diameter of collagen fibrils and lateral fusion between fibrils. Collagen fibrils are important for the maintenance(More)
