Increased Fibronectin Expression in Sturge-Weber Syndrome Fibroblasts and Brain Tissue

Abstract

Sturge-Weber syndrome (SWS) is a neurocutaneous disorder that presents with a facial port-wine stain and a leptomeningeal angioma. Fibronectin expression regulates angiogenesis and vasculogenesis and participates in brain tissue responses to ischemia and seizures. We therefore hypothesized that abnormal gene expression of fibronectin and other extracellular… (More)
