Distribution of connective tissue proteins in chick muscle spindles as revealed by monoclonal antibodies: a unique distribution of brachionectin/tenascin.


The distribution of chick muscle spindles of eight connective tissue proteins (collagen types I, IV, V, and VI, laminin, heparan sulfate, fibronectin, and brachionectin/tenascin) was examined by immunofluorescent histochemistry. Intrafusal fibers were surrounded by layers of collagen type VI and fibronectin, and by an external lamina containing collagen… (More)
