Matrix composition and the biomechanical environment are intimately interdependent in most connective tissues. Lubricin has many distinct biological functions, including lubrication, antiadhesion, and cytoprotection in cartilage, tendons, and other tissues. This study investigated the distribution of lubricin in the canine flexor digitorum profundus (FDP) tendon by immunohistochemistry. Lubricin was found both on the tendon surface and at the interface of collagen fiber bundles within the… CONTINUE READING
