Descriptor proteínas de la matriz extracelular
Entry term(s) proteína de la matriz extracelular
Scope note: Compuestos orgánicos macromoleculares que contienen carbono, hidrógeno, oxígeno, nitrógeno y, generalmente, azufre. Estas macromoléculas (proteínas) forman una intrincada malla en la que se integran las células para construir los tejidos. Las variaciones en los tipos relativos de macromoléculas y su organización determinan el tipo de matriz extracelular, adaptada cada una a las necesidades funcionales del tejido. Los dos tipos principales de macromoléculas que forman la matriz extracelular son los glicosaminoglicanos, unidos generalmente a proteínas (proteoglicanos), y las proteínas fibrosas (por ejemplo, COLÁGENO, ELASTINA, FIBRONECTINAS y LAMININA).

Scope note: Macromolecular organic compounds that contain carbon, hydrogen, oxygen, nitrogen, and usually, sulfur. These macromolecules (proteins) form an intricate meshwork in which cells are embedded to construct tissues. Variations in the relative types of macromolecules and their organization determine the type of extracellular matrix, each adapted to the functional requirements of the tissue. The two main classes of macromolecules that form the extracellular matrix are: glycosaminoglycans, usually linked to proteins (proteoglycans), and fibrous proteins (e.g., COLLAGEN; ELASTIN; FIBRONECTINS; and LAMININ).
