Suprastructures of the extracellular matrix, such as banded collagen fibrils, microfibrils, filaments, or networks, are composites comprising more than one type of macromolecule. The suprastructural diversity reflects tissue-specific requirements and is achieved by formation of macromolecular composites that often share their main molecular components alloyed with minor components. Both, the mechanisms of formation and the final macromolecular organizations depend on the identity of the components and their q…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
