|Title:||Cell adhesion by aqueous extract of human placenta used as wound healer|
Human placental extract
|Abstract:||Aqueous extract of human placenta, used as wound healer, has shown significant cell adhesion property on mouse peritoneal macrophages and P<sub>388D1 </sub>cultured macrophage cell line. This property was offered primarily by fibronectin type III like peptide present in the extract and is comparable to fibronectin on a molar basis. The peptide induce adhesion of cell through cell surface receptors having K<sub>d</sub> = 2.8±0.9 x 10<sup>-5</sup> <i style="">M</i> suggesting weak binding. This is in support of integrins receptors that typically exhibit low affinities. Cell adhesion was partially inhibited by Arg-Gly-Asp (RGD) peptide, anti-β<sub>1 </sub>integrin suggesting that integrin β<sub>1 </sub>receptors have roles to play in the process.|
