Abstract

Structural glycoproteins are among the phylogenetically oldest matrix components (for a review, see Robert, 1930; Robert et al., 1976, 1980). They could be detected together with collagen from the first metazoans, the Porifera (Labat-Robert et al., 1979; Junqua et al., 1975; Junqua and Robert, 1979). Although these matrix components were discovered and designated as structural glycoproteins from the early 60’s (Robert et al., 1963, 1968), a great deal of interest was raised in their investigation by the recent discoveries of fibronectin and laminin (for review, see Vaheri et al., 1980; Timpl et al., 1980).
