Connective tissue growth factor (CTGF) is a 38 kDa modular protein that is involved in processes such as cell proliferation, survival, migration, adhesion and extracellular matrix production. Target cells for CTGF include fibroblasts, smooth muscle cells and endothelial cells. Using a specific peptide antibody, CTGF was localized in tissue sections obtained from mouse embryos between days 7.5 and 14.5 of gestation. On day 7.5, CTGF was present at high levels in the embryonic ectoderm, mesoderm… CONTINUE READING
