Term Detail
GO term:microfibril
Synonym: extended fibrils
Synonym: fibrillin
GO id:GO:0001527
Definition:Extracellular matrix components occurring independently or along with elastin. Thought to have force-bearing functions in tendon. In addition to fibrillins, microfibrils may contain other associated proteins.
