Summary of Extracellular matrix
The extracellular matrix is a mixture of protein and carbohydrate components providing structural and biochemical support to cells. The most abundant component of the extracellular matrix is collagen, giving the matrix strength and flexibility. Chemical and mechanical cues can be signaled from the extracellular matrix to the cell through proteins, including integrin proteins embedded in the plasma membrane of the cell.
