We have isolated the collagenase/gelatinase activity of fibronectin from a bovine lens capsule hydrolysate, using heparin-agarose, gelatin-agarose, immunopurification with polyclonal antibodies directed against bovine plasma fibronectin, and immunopurification with a monoclonal antibody directed against the extra-domain A of cellular fibronectin. The expression of collagenase/gelatinase activity by the purified fibronectin fragment was dependent on the incubation time at 37 degrees C and the… CONTINUE READING
