Basement membrane and interstitial proteoglycans produced by MDCK cells correspond to those expressed in the kidney cortex.

Abstract

Multiple proteoglycans (PGs) are present in all basement membranes (BM) and may contribute to their structure and function, but their effects on cell behavior are not well understood. Their postulated functions include: a structural role in maintaining tissue histoarchitecture, or aid in selective filtration processes; sequestration of growth factors; and… (More)
