    Recent evidence shows that the extracellular matrix can take part in regulating the expression of genes. A likely possibility for this might be which of the following?

    A) Mechanical signals of the ECM can alter the cytoskeleton, which can alter intracellular signaling.

    B) Intracellularsignals might cause changes in the fibronectin binding to the cell surface.

    C) Orientation of microfilaments to the ECM can change the gene activity.

    D) Fibronectin binds to integrins built into the plasma membrane.

    E) Proteoglycans in the ECM become large enough in aggregate to force genetic alteration.
