A comparative study of fibronectin localization in the cells and paraplastic structures of total film loose connective tissue preparations obtained from different animal species (mice, rats, guinea-pigs, golden hamsters) made it possible to reveal some regularities. In mice and rats, protein was found in fibroblast cytoplasm (or on its surface) in the form of dots and dotted lines. In golden hamsters, it was found in the form of larger round loci, whereas in guinea-pigs, fibronectin was diffused. In glycokalyx, fibronectin was detectable on the surface of reticular fibres in the form of ununiform accumulations...

Visceral glomerular epithelial cells (or podocytes) are endowed with a highly polyanionic glycokalyx which is rich in sialic acid. We have identified a single sialoprotein - MW 140 kD - which we have called "Podocalyxin", and which is the major carrier of glomerular sialic acid. We have shown that podocalyxin of normal rat glomeruli contains 20 sialic acid residues per molecule, whereas in aminonucleoside nephrotic glomeruli only 4-5 sialic acid per molecule are present. We conclude that the loss of histochemical staining for the "glomerular polyanion" is due both to the reduction of sialic acid per podocalyxin molecule, and to the reduction of the surface of the podocyte's plasmalemma caused by spreading of footprocesses...

Search Tips

Use Boolean operators: AND/OR

diabetic AND foot
diabetes OR diabetic

Exclude a word using the 'minus' sign

Virchow -triad

Use Parentheses

water AND (cup OR glass)

Add an asterisk (*) at end of a word to include word stems

Neuro* will search for Neurology, Neuroscientist, Neurological, and so on

Use quotes to search for an exact phrase

"primary prevention of cancer"
(heart or cardiac or cardio*) AND arrest -"American Heart Association"
