Platelet-derived growth factor-stimulated secretion of basement membrane proteins by skeletal muscle occurs by tyrosine kinase-dependent and -independent pathways.

Abstract

The basement membrane of skeletal muscle is produced by the muscle cells it ensheathes and by nonmuscle cells located in the surrounding extracellular matrix. In this study, we have shown that platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF) stimulates secretion of three basement membrane components of skeletal muscle: laminin (70% increase), fibronectin (30%), and… (More)
