Thrombospondin-1 (TSP-1) is a 450 kDa matrix bound glycoprotein involved in tumor invasion, metastasis, and angiogenesis. One of the receptors involved in TSP-1 mediated tumor cell adhesion and metastasis is the cysteine-serine-valine-threonine-cysteine-glycine (CSVTCG) receptor. One mechanism of TSP-1 in promoting tumor cell metastasis involves the(More)
The overall structure of type IV collagen is the same at neutral and acidic pH, as determined by circular dichroism spectra. The heating rate dependence of denaturation midpoint temperature (T(m)) shows that type IV collagen is unstable at body temperature, similarly to type I collagen. The heating rate dependence of T(m) at neutral pH has two phases, but(More)
