    Most of our work has concentrated on cardiovascular applications, where we have: designed biomaterial scaffold environments for healthy and diseased valve cell culture, investigated the roles of specific extracellular matrix components in regulating valve cell behavior in 3-D leaflet organ cultures, characterized intracellular signaling. Matrix Biology (established in as Collagen and Related Research) is a cutting-edge journal that is devoted to publishing the latest results in matrix biology welcome articles that reside at the nexus of understanding the cellular and molecular pathophysiology of the extracellular matrix.

    Communication by extracellular signals usually involves six steps: (1) synthesis and (2) release of the signaling molecule by the signaling cell; (3) transport of the signal to the target cell; (4) detection of the signal by a specific receptor protein; (5) a change in cellular metabolism, function, or development triggered by the receptor-signal complex; and (6) removal of the signal, which Cited by: 2.

Metalloproteinases (MMPs) are endopeptidases which are able to degrade different components of the ECM and nucleus matrix and to cleave numerous non-ECM proteins. Among pathological processes, MMPs are involved in adipose tissue expansion, liver fibrosis, and Cited by: 5.

The extracellular matrix occupies approximately 20% of the normal adult brain 59 and is composed of mainly unbranched polysaccharide hyaluronic acid and chondroitin sulfate proteoglycans of the lectican family, such as aggrecan, versican, brevican, and neurocan, 60 where hyaluronic acid acts as a backbone to recruit proteoglycans and.

The hepatic extracellular matrix (ECM) is a complex network of macromolecules that not only provides cells with an extracellular scaffold but also plays an important role in the regulation of cellular activities.

In normal liver, the ECM comprises less than 3% of the relative area on a tissue section and approximately % of the wet weight.

An additional influence of the extracellular matrix on morphogenesis and cellular metabolism can be ascribed to the storage and release of growth factors which is modulated by their binding to specific matrix components [1,2]. The most abundant proteins in the extracellular matrix are members of the collagen family.

Introduction to Extracellular Matrix and Cell Adhesion The extracellular matrix is a generic term encompassing mixtures of polysaccharides and proteins, including collagens, bronectins, laminins, and proteoglycans, all secreted by the cell.

The proportions of these components can vary greatly depending on tissue type. Background: Liver fibrosis is the result of continuous liver injury stemming from different etiological duct injury induces an altered expression of TGF-beta, which has an important role in liver fibrosis because this cytokine induces the expression of target genes such as collagens, PAI-1, TIMPs, and others that lead to extracellular matrix deposition.

The extracellular matrix is one coherent system that interacts with and influences tissues and cells throughout the body. By normalizing the matrix, we normalize the cell membranes as well as the movement of nutrients from the blood into the cells and the movement of toxins from the cells into the blood.
