Abstract:
v. HA binding proteins (Hyaladherins) differentially affected extracellular HA structures. Inter-alpha-trypsin inhibitor (loci) is important in the formation of HA coats as well as HA cables. Tumour necrosis factor-stimulated gene-6 (TSG-6) is seen to be crucial to the formation of HA coats but not HA cables, while the role of versican in either structures is not fully determined yet although it is thought to be more crucial to the formation of HA cables.
