Extracellular matrix alterations in brains lacking four of its components.


The organization of the brain extracellular matrix appears to be based on aggregates of hyaluronan and proteoglycans, connected by oligomeric glycoproteins. Mild phenotypical consequences were reported from several mouse strains lacking components of this matrix such as neurocan, brevican, tenascin-R, and tenascin-C. To further challenge the flexibility of… (More)
