The distribution of the extracellular matrix glycoprotein, tenascin, in normal skin and healing skin wounds in rats, has been investigated by immunohistochemistry. In normal skin, tenascin was sparsely distributed, predominantly in association with basement membranes. In wounds, there was a marked increase in the expression of tenascin at the wound edge in all levels of the skin. There was also particularly strong tenascin staining at the dermal-epidermal junction beneath migrating… CONTINUE READING
