The laminin family

Curr Opin Cell Biol. 1993 Oct;5(5):877-82. doi: 10.1016/0955-0674(93)90038-r.


During the preceding year significant progress has been made in our understanding of laminin structure and expression. Highlights include the identification of new subunit chains and molecular isoforms as well as new information on tissue-specific gene expression, laminin self-assembly and interactions with other matrix components.
