...Yuina Hirose; Yohei Hirai ABSTRACT Mammary epithelia undergo dramatic morphogenesis after puberty. During pregnancy, luminal epithelial cells in ductal trees are arranged to form well-polarized cystic structures surrounded by a myoepithelial cell layer, an active supplier of the basement membrane...

...Claire Leclech; Carlo F. Natale; Abdul I. Barakat ABSTRACT The basement membrane (BM) is a thin specialized extracellular matrix that functions as a cellular anchorage site, a physical barrier and a signaling hub. While the literature on the biochemical composition and biological activity of the BM...

... and differentiate to form a stratified epithelium. Using a comparative proteomic approach, we studied this ‘confluence switch’ and identified a new pathway triggered by cell confluence that regulates basement membrane (BM) protein composition by suppressing the uPA–uPAR–plasmin pathway. Indeed, confluence triggers...

Using high-resolution light microscopy, we show here that LN-5 is localized in a bi-membranous conduit-like structure, together with other typical basement membrane components...

Electron immunomicroscopy revealed accumulation of type IV collagen in dilated ERs, but not in the BM of Hsp47 –/– embryos, whereas it was only present in the BM in Hsp47 +/+ embryos. The BM structures stained with anti-laminin and anti-nidogen-1...
