• study
  • The ultrastructure of patch-clamped membranes: a study using high voltage electron microscopy. (rupress.org)
  • In this study, we found that exogenous laminin-1, like neuromuscular laminins-2/4, formed two distinct extracellular matrices on Schwann cell surfaces, each facilitated by laminin polymerization. (biologists.org)
  • In this study we have investigated the contributions of dystroglycan,β 1-integrin, and corresponding interacting long arm globular LG modules of laminin to Schwann cell basement membrane formation in vitro. (biologists.org)
  • surface
  • The patch pipette can serve, not only as a recording device, but as a tool for sampling discrete regions of the cell surface. (rupress.org)
  • Assembly of one, a densely-distributed reticular matrix, was accompanied by a redistribution of cell-surface dystroglycan and cytoskeletal utrophin into matrix-receptor-cytoskeletal complexes. (biologists.org)
  • structure
  • The structure of patches taken from a single cell type is variable but there are consistent differences between patches made from different cell types. (rupress.org)
  • We found that dystroglycan and utrophin underwent a dynamic rearrangement with exogenous laminin into a dense (reticular) structure with classical ultrastructural features of a basement membrane. (biologists.org)
