Inhibition of rat glomerular visceral epithelial cell growth by heparin.

Abstract

The effect of several glycosaminoglycans and sulfated polysaccharides on the growth of cultured rat glomerular visceral epithelial cells (GEC) was studied in vitro. Heparin, one preparation of heparan sulfate proteoglycan, dextran sulfate, and pentosan polysulfate significantly inhibited the growth of several GEC clones studied (36.0-77.1% inhibition at 100… (More)
