Identification of laminin-10/11 as a strong cell adhesive complex for a normal and a malignant human epithelial cell line.


Laminins are heterotrimeric proteins of basement membranes. More than 50 different trimers may exist. Laminin-10 (alpha5beta1gamma1 rather than laminin-1 (alpha1beta1gamma1) could be the most abundant isoform in the adult stage, and laminin-10 is made by several developing epithelial sheets. We show here that a much used commercial human preparation… (More)
