Tenascin-X (TNX) is an extracellular matrix protein that is highly expressed in the peripheral nervous system as well as muscular tissues, especially the heart and skeletal muscle. However, the expression manner and the physiological role of TNX in the peripheral nervous system have not been fully investigated. In this study, we elucidated its distribution in adult mouse sciatic nerves by immunohistochemical staining. TNX was found to be localized in the perineurium and the endoneurium of… CONTINUE READING
