We defined the role of urokinase plasminogen activator (uPA) and its growth factor-like domain (GFD) in stimulating smooth muscle cell (SMC) migration. Recombinant uPA (r-uPA) stimulated migration approximately 3-fold whilst the recombinant uPA mutant containing an altered GFD (r-uPAmut) was ineffective. Both uPA variants bound to the same high affinity(More)
Spatial distribution of fibronectin and type I, III, IV and V collagen has been investigated in normal arterial intima, fatty streaks, and atherosclerotic plaques by indirect immunofluorescence on transverse sections. Two distinct types of extracellular matrix were revealed in atherosclerotic lesions. The fibrous plaques consisted mostly of interstitial(More)
In order to assess the characteristics of its stromal cells and the distribution of extracellular matrix proteins, we investigated, immunohistochemically and ultrastructurally, term, first and second trimester human umbilical cords. A differential distribution pattern of the various cytoskeletal proteins of stromal cells and extracellular matrix proteins(More)
The cytotoxic action of glucose oxidase conjugated with antibodies against the target cells has been examined in a culture of human endothelial cells. Internalizable (anti-endothelial, MoAb E25) and non-internalizable (anti-fibronectin, MoAb FN) monoclonal antibodies were employed as vectors. Anti-endothelial monoclonal antibody E78 (whether it can be(More)
We have studied the interaction of human platelets with surfaces coated with human type I, III, IV, and V collagen (CI, CIII, CIV, and CV). It was established using scanning electron microscopy that the reactivity of the collagen substrates for platelets varies widely. On CV, only the initial attachment of platelets takes place; spreading actively goes on(More)
A number of different monomer and dimer derivatives of protein L7/L12 has been studied in EF-G-dependent reactions on the ribosome. It has been shown that only dimer derivatives of protein L7/L12 are able to interact with the ribosome. This means that it is the dimer forms of protein L7/L12 that are present in the functionally active ribosome. It is likely(More)
35 autopsies--aged 30 to 75 years--were investigated in order to establish trends of collagen localization in various types of arteries depending on age, arterial size and degree of atherosclerosis. Cryostat sections stained with highly specific antibodies to human types I, III, IV or V collagen, or with the antiserum to smooth muscle myosin were examined(More)
The techniques of immunotherapy and radioimmunoimaging suffer from the problem of background: intravenously injected antibodies remain in the circulation much longer than it is necessary for effective binding to the target. Various approaches, including the postinjection of second antibodies, were explored to overcome the problem with some success. The(More)
The effectiveness of thrombolytic therapy is determined by accessibility of thrombus compartments to plasminogen activators and, therefore, depends on permeability of thrombus to blood born macromolecules. Accumulation of 125I labeled proteins with molecular massess ranging from 150 to 450 kD into partly contracted blood clot or plasma clot was consistent(More)
The interaction of human red blood cells carrying antihuman collagen antibody with collagen-coated surfaces was studied. Avidin was used as bifunctional crosslinking agent for the attachment of antibody to the red blood cell surface. Antibody-carrying red blood cells efficiently and specifically bound to collagen-coated surface covering a significant part(More)
