Recent advances in research on fibronectin and other cell attachment proteins

Document Type


Publication Date



Fibronectin and other cell attachment proteins provide molecular models for beginning to unravel the complex interactions of the cell surface with the extracellular matrix. This area has been reviewed in considerable detail previously [1–10]. Our brief review will therefore be selective rather than comprehensive, and it will focus on some recent generalizations about this class of proteins, as well as on recent advances in the molecular analysis of the functions of these proteins and their receptors. we shall also present various popular or provocative hypotheses and speculations about future work in the field.
