I have just created the
extra-cellular-matrix tag, because it best describes my question. Besides, even the basal lamina alone is important enough to warrant a tag, and ECM would be the superset of that. I haven't yet checked which existing questions fit this tag, but I'm sure I will find some when I have the time to do so (and if not I can ask a few myself
I realized that there are also some questions about biofilms. A biofilm is "kind of like an ECM for bacteria", so perhaps it could just fall under the
extra-cellular-matrix tag. However, I'm not sure if biofilms technically count as ECM.
Does anyone have an opinion on the existing
extra-cellular-matrix tag, the hypothetical
biofilm tags, and how they should relate to each other?
