Epimorphin is known as a mesenchymal factor involved in epithelial morphogenesis. This protein has, however, a curious nature in that only certain of its molecules are transported to extracellular regions after having undergone complex conformational changes. In the present study, we generated an N-terminally modified recombinant epimorphin fragment as a substitute for the extracellular epimorphin and examined n detail how this polypeptide affects cellular behavior in a model cell system. As… CONTINUE READING
