A series of peptides of 15 amino acids with sequences contained in human extracellular matrix (ECM) proteins (fibronectin, laminin A, laminin B1, tenascin, undulin, alpha 1-chain of type IV and VIII collagen and alpha 2-chain of type VIII collagen) have been synthesized. The selected structures conformed to the following pattern: (i) Pro at position 6, (ii) Leu, Lys, Ile, Val, Ala or Gly at position 2, (iii) Glu or Asp at position 11. Fibronectin and the indicated peptides, when present in… CONTINUE READING
