Human umbilical vein endothelial cells were found to attach and partially spread on human tenascin. The attachment of endothelial cells to tenascin results in elongated cells with interconnecting processes and is distinct from the flattened appearance of endothelial cells on fibronectin, collagen, vitronectin or laminin substrata, suggesting a role for… CONTINUE READING
