Abstract

Extracellular matrix components, such as laminin and fibronectin, promote cellular adhesion, growth, migration, and differentiation of glioma cells [1,2]. Matrigel is a biopolymer of natural constituents containing 60% laminin, 30% type IV collagen, 5% nidogen, 3% heparin sulfate proteoglycan, and 1% entactin.
