Methods for Identification of Fibronectins

  • Richard O. Hynes
Part of the Springer Series in Molecular Biology book series (SSMOL)


In order to provide a context for later detailed discussions of the structure, interactions, and functions of fibronectins, I have reviewed in the next two chapters the data on the occurrence of the various types of fibronectin both in vivo (Chapter 3) and in tissue culture (Chapter 4). To do this critically, it is obviously necessary to discuss first the criteria by which we define fibronectins and the way in which they are identified and quantitated. So, this chapter will describe the operational definitions of and assays for fibronectins (FNs).
