Mechanisms of serum protein binding and cell anchorage to immobilized serotonin and indole analogs.

Bovine aortal endothelial cells, bovine smooth muscle cells, chick embryo fibroblasts, and baby hamster kidney cells all attached and grew on immobilized tryptamine or L-tryptophan as successfully as on immobilized serotonin. A detailed investigation employing different serum compositions combined with cell blotting and immunoblotting techniques revealed… CONTINUE READING
