Basement membranes (BMs) are thin layers of extracellular matrix (ECM) found at the basal surface of many cell types, including epithelial cells. BMs present growth, differentiation, and anti-apoptotic signals and provide structural support to cells, compartmentalize tissues, and serve as filters. The structure and function of BMs depend on their complement of laminins, a family of alpha beta gamma heterotrimeric glycoproteins. We found that laminins containing the alpha2 and alpha4 chains are… CONTINUE READING
