The role of fibronectin (FN) and vitronectin (VN) receptors for cell adhesion and matrix assembly was analyzed during human fetal myogenesis in vivo and in vitro. In human fetal muscle at 10 weeks gestational age FN and laminin are present in the extracellular matrix. Analysis of the integrin repertoire at this developmental stage reveals that the differentiated muscle cells in vivo express alpha 5 and alpha 6 integrins, but not alpha v, alpha 1, and alpha 3 integrins. However, in vitro… CONTINUE READING
