  7.                                                               i.      each of the two polypeptide chains that make up a firbonectin molecule contains:
    • 1.      binding sites for numerous components of the ECM which facilitate interactions that link these diverse molecules into a stable, interconnected network
    • 2.      binding sites for receptors on the cell surface, which hold the ECM in a stable attachment ot the cell
  8. a.       binding activities of fibronectin molecules are enhanced by __ that pull on these fibrous proteins and unfold its component molecules, which __ the __
    • mechanical forces
    • exposes the binding sites
  9.                                                               i.      importance evident during __, which Is characterized by waves of cell __during which different cells follow different routes from one part of the embryo to another
    1.      migrating cells are guided by proteins
    a.       ex: neural cell migration
    • embryonic development
    • migration
  10. a.       Laminin
                                                                  i.      family of __ that consist of __ linked by __ and organized into a molecule resembling a cross with three short aarms and one long arm
                                                                ii.      at least __identified
