Announcing the first Akron Webinar: Learn all about Fibronectin

Posted on

We are pleased to announce the first Akron Webinar, in association with Pelobiotech. As we enhance our efforts in providing services and training to the regenerative medicine industry, we have developed a series of training webinars about some of the key topics in our research portfolio. The first among these is about the extracellular matrix protein fibronectin, a long-standing staple in the Akron line of ECM products, and a key protein responsible for differentiation, homeostasis and processes such as wound healing. The webinar is an opportunity to not only learn the basics about this important protein, but also hear the latest clinical and non-clinical applications.

Read the full abstract below:

The extracellular matrix (ECM) is the non-cellular component present within all tissues and organs, responsible for regulating functions such as tissue morphogenesis, differentiation and homeostasis. One of the main protein components of the ECM is fibronectin. Fibronectin is a fibrous protein responsible for directing the organization of the ECM and mediating cell attachment and function. In cellular systems, fibronectin exists in two forms: cellular and plasma fibronectin. Recently, fibronectin has been implicated in a range of important medical functions such as the generation of insulin-producing cells as well as tissue repair following spinal cord injury. This webinar will introduce the main biological and physical aspects of fibronectin, outline how fibronectin is produced, and give an overview of new clinical and non-clinical applications.

The free webinar will take place on May 14th, 2014 at 12 noon EST (9am PST or 6pm CET). To register, visit this link from this week or send an email to We hope to see you there, and stay tuned for more webinars in the future.
