Normal endothelial and epithelial cells undergo apoptosis when cell adhesion and spreading are prevented, implying a requirement for antiapoptotic signals from the extracellular matrix for cell survival. We investigated some of the molecular changes occurring in focal adhesions during growth factor deprivation-induced apoptosis in confluent monolayers of(More)
Metalloproteinase-like, disintegrin-like, and cysteine-rich proteins (MDCs) are potential novel regulators of cell-cell and cell-matrix interactions, as well as of matrix degradation. We have asked whether MDCs are expressed in cultured diploid vascular cells, and have identified MDC 15 in human aortic smooth muscle (SMC) and umbilical vein endothelium(More)
