Density-dependent modulation of vascular smooth muscle alpha-actin biosynthetic processing in differentiated BC3H1 myogenic cells.

Abstract

The expression of vascular smooth muscle (VSM) alpha-actin mRNA during BC3H1 myogenic cell differentiation is specifically stimulated by conditions of high cell density. Non-proteolytic dissociation of cell-cell and cell-matrix contacts in post-confluent cultures of BC3H1 myocytes using EDTA promotes loss of the differentiated morphological phenotype. EDTA… (More)
