Thrombospondin-1-Derived Peptide RFYVVMWK Improves the Adhesive Phenotype of CD34+ Cells From Atherosclerotic Patients With Type 2 Diabetes.


CD34+ progenitor cells are growing in use for vascular repair. However, in diabetic individuals with cardiovascular diseases, these cells have dysfunctional engraftment capabilities, which compromise their use for autologous cell therapy. The thrombospondin-1-derived peptide RFYVVMWK has previously been reported to stimulate cell adhesiveness through CD47… (More)
