Unformatted text preview: different extracellular components. Both of them have collagen binding sites. Laminin and Fibronectin can also be bound to cell surface binding proteins like dytroglycans or integrins. This would allow for the collagen to have greater organization. Another option is fibril associated collagens, which organize by associating along the length of fibrils....
