Tenascin C (TN-C) is a glycoprotein that in humans is encoded by the TNC gene.

It is expressed in the extracellular matrix of various tissues during development, disease, or injury, and in restricted neurogenic areas of the central nervous system.

Tenascin-C is the founding member of the tenascin protein family. In the embryo it is made by migrating cells like the neural crest; it is also abundant in developing tendons, bone, and cartilage.
