Tenascins are a family of four extracellular matrix proteins: tenascin-C, X, R and W. The four members of the family have strikingly diverse patterns of expression during development and in the adult organism indicating independent mechanisms of regulation. In this review we illustrate that there are two types of tenascins, those that are significantly regulated by the tissue microenvironment (tenascin-C and tenascin-W), and those that have stabile, restricted expression patterns (tenascin-R… CONTINUE READING
