Incorporation of tenascin-C into the extracellular matrix by periostin underlies an extracellular meshwork architecture.

Abstract

Extracellular matrix (ECM) underlies a complicated multicellular architecture that is subjected to significant forces from mechanical environment. Although various components of the ECM have been enumerated, mechanisms that evolve the sophisticated ECM architecture remain to be addressed. Here we show that periostin, a matricellular protein, promotes… (More)
