Hyaluronate binding and CD44 expression in human glioblastoma cells and astrocytes.


CD44 is an integral membrane glycoprotein of approximately 90 kDa which has been implicated in the binding of hyaluronate to the cell surface. The expression of CD44 in astrocytes was investigated by means of indirect immunofluorescence on cultured cells. The vast majority of these cells were found to express CD44. Western blot analysis of these cells… (More)
