Tightening the connections between cadherins and fibronectin matrix.

Hunt GC , Schwarzbauer JE .


Abstract
Fibronectin extracellular matrix is assembled and remodeled throughout embryogenesis and plays key roles in early vertebrate development. In this issue of Developmental Cell, Dzamba et al. reveal, through their studies of Xenopus embryos, a novel mechanism for regulating fibronectin matrix assembly through Wnt signaling and cadherin-mediated cell-cell adhesion.
