Tenascin-C expression and distribution in cultured human chondrocytes and chondrosarcoma cells.

Abstract

Tenascin-C (TNC) is an oligomeric glycoprotein of the extracellular matrix with several distinct isoforms variably expressed during embryogenesis, tumorogenesis, angiogenesis and wound healing. In the normal human adult, TNC is found in large concentrations in articular cartilage, suggesting tissue-specific function. The purpose of this study was to… (More)
