How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

Inflammatory alterations of the extracellular matrix shape the tumor microenvironment and promote all stages of carcinogenesis. This study aims to determine the impact of cellular fibronectin on inflammatory facets of tumor-associated macrophages (TAMs) in breast cancer. Cellular fibronectin (FN) harboring the alternatively spliced extra domain A (...
Changes in the spatial landscape of the extracellular matrix (ECM) in health and disease significantly impact the surrounding tissues. Quantifying the spatial variations in the fibrillar architecture of major ECM proteins could enable a profound understanding of the link between tissue structure and function. We propose a method to capture relevant...
Cellular fibronectin (FN; also known as FN1) variants harboring one or two alternatively spliced so-called extra domains (EDB and EDA) play a central bioregulatory role during development, repair processes and fibrosis. Yet, how the extra domains impact fibrillar assembly and function of the molecule remains unclear. Leveraging a unique biological...
Normal tissue homeostasis and architecture restrain tumor growth. Thus, for a tumor to develop and spread, malignant cells must overcome growth-repressive inputs from surrounding tissue and escape immune surveillance mechanisms that curb cancer progression. This is achieved by promoting the conversion of a physiological microenvironment to a pro-tu...
The Extracellular Matrix (ECM) constitutes a fibrillar platform that integrates the action of chemical and mechanical cues from the environment. Fibronectin (FN), a major component of the ECM, is at the center of this bioregulatory stage, modulating numerous biological procedures such as cell adhesion and motility, cell proliferation and differenti...
