  1. The integrins that follow the FN1 RNA expression pattern (marked in bold) are considered as candidate receptors for the FN1-ESV isoform (-: no expression, +/-: expression in part of the samples; + low expression; ++ moderate expression, +++ high expression compared to FN1 blastocyst expression).
