  • Integrin a2b1 is the major receptor for collagens in human tissues, being involved in cell adhesion and the control of collagen and collagenase gene expression. The collagen binding site of a2b1 has been localized to the a2 von Willebrand Factor type A (VWFA) domain (A-domain or I-domain) and the residues responsible for the interaction with collagen have been mapped. We report a study of a2 VWFA domain in which residue E318, which lies outside the collagen binding site, is mutated to tryptophan, showing that this is a gain-of-function mutation. ...

  • The red cell intercellular adhesion molecule-4 (ICAM-4) binds to different members of the integrin receptor families. Tobetterdefine the ICAM-4 integrinreceptor specificity, cell transfectants individually expressing various integrins were used to demonstrate thataLb2,aMb2,andaIIbb3(activated) bind specifically and dose dependently to the recombinant ICAM-4-Fcprotein.We also showthat cell surface ICAM-4 interacts with the cell surface aVb3 integrin.

  • Adhesive properties of endothelial cells are influenced by the thioldisulfide balance. However, the molecular mechanism of this effect is unclear, although recent observations indicate that integrin receptors may be direct targets for redox modulation. The purpose of this study was to examine whether protein disulfide isomerase (PDI) is directly involved in this pro-cess.

  • Recently, a new protein containing a disintegrin domain, alternagin-C (Alt-C), was purified fromBothrops alternatus venom. Unlike other disintegrins, in Alt-C an ECD amino acid motif takes the place of the RGD sequence. Most dis-integrins contain an RGD/KGD sequence and are very potent inhibitors of platelet aggregation, as well as other cell interactions with the extracellular matrix, including tumor cell metastasis and angiogenesis. The present study investi-gated the effects of Alt-C on human neutrophil chemotaxis in vitro and the activation of integrin-mediated pathways....

  • Being diagnosed with cancer is devastating. But when the cancer cells have to spread to form secondary colonies, the prognosis for the patient is worse. If meaningful improvements in survival are to occur, then control of metastasis will be a foundation. Relatively little is known about the control of the metastatic process at the molecular level. This volume begins to explore our current knowledge regarding the underlying molecular and biochemical mechanisms controlling the metastatic phenotype.

  • Tumor angiogenesis is a complex process involving many different cell types that must proliferate, migrate, invade, and differentiate in response to signals from the tumor microenvironment. Endothelial cells (ECs) sprout from host vessels in response to VEGF, bFGF, Ang2, and other proangiogenic stimuli. Sprouting is stimulated by VEGF/VEGFR2, Ang2/Tie-2, and integrin/extracellular matrix (ECM) interactions.

  • Numerous virus–target cell interactions have been described, and it is now clear that different viruses can use similar host-cell receptors for entry. The list of certain and likely host receptors for viral pathogens is long. Among the host membrane components that can serve as receptors for viruses are sialic acids, gangliosides, glycosaminoglycans, integrins and other members of the immunoglobulin superfamily, histocompatibility antigens, and regulators and receptors for complement components.

  • The vertex of the adenoviral capsid is formed by the penton, a complex of two proteins, the pentameric penton base and the trimeric fiber protein. The penton contains all necessary components for viral attachment and entry into the host cell. After initial attachment via the head domain of the fiber protein, the penton base interacts with cellular integrins through an Arg-Gly-Asp (RGD) motif located in a hypervariable surface loop, trigger-ing virus internalization.

  • NBR1(named as next toBRCA1) was originally cloned as a candidate gene for the ovarian cancer antigen CA125, using expression cloning with the anti-CA125 Ig, OC125.NBR1 has been of interest due to its position close toBRCA1, although no involvement in breast or ovarian cancer has been demonstrated. Recently, the antigen CA125 has been cloned, and identi®ed as a new mucin, MUC16, entirely di€erent from NBR1.
