Looking at the area of the extracellular matrix of connective tissue, including the results and concepts which have recently been generated, this text describes the structural characteristics of extracellular molecules and discusses the interaction between the cell and the extracellular matrix.

Table of Contents

Molecular components: water - dynamic aspects; collagen superfamily; noncollagenous matrix proteins; elastic tissue, elastin and elastin associated fibrils; hyaluronan; matrix proteoglycans; heparan sulphate proteoglycans; the control of cell growth. Cell-matrix interactions: regulation of gene expression by the extracellular matrix; molecular recognition of the extracellular matrix by cell surface receptors; the role of specific macromolecules in cell-matrix interactions and in matrix function - physicochemical and mechanical mediators of chondrocyte biosynthesis; morphogenesis of connective tissues
