Objective: Among the extracellular matrix (ECM) proteins enriched in gliomas, the tenascin family plays an outstanding role in tumorigenesis and neoangiogenesis and, moreover, impacts patient outcome. Recently, Tenascin-W (TN-W) was identified as a novel member of the tenascin family that exhibits a[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
