An amino-terminal fibronectin fragment stimulates the differentiation of ST-13 preadipocytes.


Differentiation of ST-13 preadipocytes into adipocytes was inhibited almost completely by addition of rat plasma fibronectin (FN) (approximately 100 micrograms/mL), but was reversed by GRGDSP cell recognition peptide (1.5 mM) and anti-alpha 5 beta 1. On the contrary, the thermolysin digest of FN stimulated adipocyte differentiation in a dose-dependent… (More)
