General information

  • Adipocyte-derived collagen VI affects early mammary tumor progression in vivo, demonstrating a critical interaction in the tumor/stroma microenvironment. [1]
  • Functions: composed of 3 alpha chains in the ECM; adhesive structure in the basement membrane, interacting there with other ECM components, in vitro potoent induction of myofibroblast differentiation. [2]
