The role of heparin-binding growth-associated molecule (HB-GAM) in the postsynaptic induction in cultured muscle cells.


The heparan sulfate proteoglycan (HSPGs) is a components of the extracellular matrix of skeletal muscle that is concentrated at the neuromuscular junction (NMJ). Recent studies have suggested that HSPG, together with its bound peptide growth factors, plays important roles in autocrine or paracrine types of regulation of cell growth and differentiation… (More)
