Recombinant GST-human osteopontin fusion protein is functional in RGD-dependent cell adhesion.


Osteopontin (OPN) is a secreted phosphoprotein expressed by many tumor cells, as well as a limited set of normal cells. Native OPN has been shown to support cell adhesion in an RGD-peptide-inhibitable fashion. Here we expressed human OPN in E. coli as a recombinant fusion protein with glutathione-S-transferase (GST). We report that the GST-OPN fusion… (More)
