Oxidative cross-linking of fibronectin confers protease resistance and inhibits cellular migration
The oxidation of tyrosine residues to generate o,o'-dityrosine cross-links in extracellular proteins is necessary for the proper function of the extracellular matrix (ECM) in various contexts in invertebrates. Tyrosine oxidation is also required for the biosynthesis of thyroid hormone in vertebrates, and there is evidence for oxidative cross-linking reactions occurring in extracellular proteins secreted by myofibroblasts. The ECM protein fibronectin circulates in the blood as a globular protein that dimerizes through disulfide bridges generated by cysteine oxidation. We found that cellular (fibrillar) fibronectin on the su...

The asbestos cleanup of Libby, Montana, is coming to a celebrated close. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency will soon end the largest, longest-running asbestos cleanup project in American history. It’s a bittersweet ending to what is left behind. The 19-year, $600 million EPA Superfund project aimed to right the wrongs created by the shuttered W.R. Grace and Co. vermiculite mine. Once the lifeblood of the community, it also became a cold-hearted killer.
