Details for anatomical structure: mesenchyme cell

EndoNet ID: ENC00473

To link to the content of EndoNet use the EndoNet ID that is given on the detail pages in the format ENX0000, where X is a place holder for the type of the component (e. g. R for receptor or C for anatomical structure).
As URL for the linking append this ID to the detail page for this type of component.
For an hormone that would be:

http://endonet.bioinf.med.uni-goettingen.de/hormone/ENH00000

It is also possible to use the search of EndoNet to link to the right detail page. The URL should look like

http://endonet.bioinf.med.uni-goettingen.de/search/ENC00000
If the search pattern is unambigious the user is directed to the corresponding detail page.

      Secreted hormones

      • Hormone: NRG1-alpha2B

      • Hormone: laminin alpha-4 chain

      Receptors

      • Receptor: integrin alpha-8/beta-1

      • Receptor: PTC1

        • Its receptor Patched-1 (Ptc) is located in the mesenchymal cells. [1]

        Induced phenotype:

        • lung development
          • The interaction between Shh and Ptc is required for lung bud formation. [1]
