The levels of endogenous basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF) in seven clones of cultured bovine capillary endothelial (BCE) cells were assayed, and their relation to cell morphology, bFGF receptor number, cell migration, amniotic membrane invasivity, and proteinase levels were studied. Immunoblotting experiments with anti-bFGF IgG demonstrated that cells from these clones contained different amounts of bFGF. The cells containing high levels of bFGF had a spindle or elongated appearance at… CONTINUE READING
