Tenascin-C Modulates Adhesion of Cardiomyocytes to Extracellular Matrix during Tissue Remodeling after Myocardial Infarction

Abstract

Tenascin-C (TNC), an extracellular matrix glycoprotein, plays important roles in tissue remodeling. TNC is not normally expressed in adults but reappears under pathologic conditions. The present study was designed to clarify the contribution of TNC to ventricular remodeling after myocardial infarction. We examined the expression of TNC after experimental… (More)
