Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


The extracellular matrix (ECM) consists of a variety of components including collagens, glycoproteins, proteoglycans, proteases and growth factors/cytokines. Cells respond to these components using a variety of receptors. This article details the observations, supporting the hypothesis that cells have a dynamic interaction with the surrounding ECM. Alteration of the ECM is reflected in both cellular function and behavior.
