Our goal is to create a unified and dynamic resource to enhance basement membrane research. Background information click here.


basement membraneBASE (bmBASE) is an atlas of basement membrane composition during development, adult life, disease and across animal species formed by connecting basement membrane gene lists with protein localisation data.

Gene network

We generated a comprehensive, integrated network of 222 human genes encoding BM zone proteins: 160 of these encode BM components and 62 are cell surface interactors, such as BM receptors.
