Thrombospondin (TSP) contains the Arg-Gly-Asp (RGD) sequence that is thought to be important for cell adhesion mediated by several cell-surface integrin receptors. The RGD sequence is located in the type 3 repeat region of TSP that has multiple Ca2+ binding sites and is subject to a complex intramolecular thiol-disulfide isomerization. TSP that we isolated(More)
An anti-cell adhesion globulin was purified from human plasma by heparin-affinity chromatography. The purified globulin inhibited spreading of osteosarcoma and melanoma cells on vitronectin, and of endothelial cells, platelets, and mononuclear blood cells on vitronectin or fibrinogen. It did not inhibit cell spreading on fibronectin. The protein had the(More)
