Thermolysin digests of human elastins were examined for reliable elastin peptide markers as determined by HPLC followed by amino acid sequencing of promising peaks. The tetrapeptide VAPG was found to occur in the early portion of the chromatogram in a

The elastin-derived peptide val-ala-pro-gly (VAPG) may be useful as a biospecific cell adhesion ligand for smooth muscle cells. By grafting the peptide sequence into a hydrogel material, we were able to assess its effects on smooth muscle cell adhesion and
International journal of cancer, 122(9), 1972-1980 (2007-12-14)
Melanomas containing more elastin are associated with higher stages of the disease. The interaction between elastin-derived peptides and melanoma cells appears to play an important role in the progression of melanomas. The effects of the elastin-derived peptides VGVAPG and VAPG
