The mammalian neuromuscular system expresses seven laminin genes (alpha 1, alpha 2, alpha 4, alpha 5, beta 1, beta 2, and gamma 1), produces seven isoforms of the laminin trimer (laminins 1, 2, 4, 8, 9, 10, and 11), and distributes these trimers to at least seven distinct basal laminae (perineurial, endoneurial, terminal Schwann cell, myotendinous junction, synaptic cleft, synaptic fold, and extrajunctional muscle). The patterns of expression, assembly, and distribution are regulated during… CONTINUE READING
