Role of alpha5beta1 and alphavbeta3 integrins on smooth muscle cell spreading and migration in fibrin gels.


Fibrin is found at sites of vascular injury and is one of the major matrix ligands for beta3 integrins. Blocking the beta3 integrin on smooth muscle cell is hypothesized as a potential target to prevent restenosis because it could inhibit cell attachment and migration into fibrin provisional matrix. Human aortic smooth muscle cells (HNB18E6E7) spread stably… (More)
