  • extracellular
  • Since collagen is a major constituent of the eukaryotic extracellular matrices, we assayed BCG cytoadherence in the presence of exogenous collagen I. Collagen increased the interaction of the bacilli with A549 type II pneumocytes or U937 macrophages, suggesting that BCG is able to recruit collagen to facilitate its attachment to host cells.

  • fragments
  • Moreover, Mycobacterium leprae LBP/Hlp, a well-characterized adhesin, was also able to bind collagen I. Finally, using recombinant fragments of M. leprae LBP/Hlp, we mapped the collagen-binding activity within the C-terminal domain of the adhesin. (fiocruz.br)
  • tissue
  • The BM is a form of ECM rich in collagen IV and tissue- specific laminins that underlies epithelia and is in direct contact with the epithelial cells as well as with other cell types (for example, endothelial and fat cells). (unt.edu)
  • Molecules
  • van den Hooff had tentatively proposed that signal molecules emanating from the ECM, such as collagens and their peptides, could "contribute to at least one aspect of ultimate malignancy of neoplastic cells" [ 1 - 4 ]. (omicsonline.org)
  • previously
  • we found previously that two distinct signals control β-casein expression in response to laminin-1. (biologists.org)
  • Using an affinity chromatography approach, we have isolated a BCG collagen-binding protein corresponding to the previously described mycobacterial laminin-binding histone-like protein (LBP/Hlp), a highly conserved protein associated with the mycobacterial cell wall. (fiocruz.br)
  • contains
  • In pigs, chromosome 15 contains a region between the microsatellites SW1683 and SW906 (79.3-89.3 cM, 127-135 Mbp) which is highly rich in QTLs associated with meat quality, fat content and growth traits. (springer.com)

  • Scanning electron microscopy examination of these clumps revealed the presence of collagen fibres cross-linking the bacilli. (fiocruz.br)
