The extracellular matrix (ECM) is important in normal development by influencing cell adhesion, migration, and differentiation. If one includes the oocyte jelly coat as a part of the ECM, it is present from before fertilization. ECM is made up of a variety of molecules, many of which are uncharacterized in lower invertebrates. In this study, a polyclonal antibody (PJC-1) which recognizes several high molecular weight ECM molecules of the starfish Pisaster ochraceus was used in conjunction with… CONTINUE READING
