Collagen and related extracellular matrix proteins in atherosclerotic plaque development.

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

Abstract

The structure, composition and turnover of the extracellular matrix (ECM) as well as cell-matrix interactions are crucial in the developing atherosclerotic plaque. There is a need for further insight into specific proteins in the ECM and their functions in the developing plaque, and during the last few years a number of publications have highlighted this very important field of research. These novel findings will be addressed in the present review.
