Cell-free fibronectin matrix (FN-matrix) isolated from chick embryo fibroblasts was used to study cell-matrix interaction. After 24 h, most fibroblastic cells, including those without cell surface fibronectin, adopted bipolar fusiform morphology. Cells grew in parallel arrays and aligned with each other apparently along FN-matrix. Since the orientation of(More)
Antiserum against a rat neuronal tumor cell line (B103) has been prepared in rabbit by intravenous injection of live cells. This immune serum (anti-B103) precipitates a few cell surface proteins recognizable by two-dimensional gel electrophoresis as common radioiodinatable spots in 15 different rat neural cell lines and in mouse and rat fibroblast cell(More)
Maltose-binding protein (MBP) from Escherichia coli has been shown to be a good substrate for protein engineering leading to altered binding (Marvin and Hellinga, Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 98:4955-4960, 2001a) and increased affinity (Marvin and Hellinga, Nat Struct Biol 8:795-798, 2001b; Telmer and Shilton, J Biol Chem 278:34555-34567, 2003). It is also used(More)
We have used fluorescein isosthiocyanate-conjugated gelatin (FITC-gelatin) (1 mg/ml) to localize cell surface fibronectin in unfixed live cells in cultures. FITC-gelatin stains the fibronectin matrix on primary cultures of rat and chick embryo fibroblasts as well as untransformed, established cell lines. In live cultured cells, fibronectin in many areas of(More)
