INTRODUCTION The in vitro characterized network linking matrix adhesion to inductive signaling is likely to influence cell fate patterning in vivo Receptor tyrosine kinase (RTK) ligands such as fibroblast growth factors (FGFs) function as pervasive inductive signals (Thisse and Thisse, 2005). Integrin-associated adhesion complexes display extensive interactions with RTKs, including FGF receptors (FGFRs), as well as downstream transduction pathways, Numerous studies have shown how RTK/integrin… CONTINUE READING
