Synthetic elastin peptides, VPGVG or its polymer (VPGVG)n, enhanced the proliferation of smooth muscle cells 1.5-fold during 48 h treatment at the concentrations over 10(-6) M or 1.0 microgram/ml, respectively. Monomeric and polymeric VPGVG sequences reduced elastin synthesis and its

A polyclonal antibody to elastin-derived hexapeptide repeat, H-(Val-Gly-Val-Ala-Pro-Gly)(3)-NH(2), was prepared in order to investigate the differences between elastin fibres in intimal hyperplasia and media in human atheroscleroic lesions. The hexapeptide repeat and alpha-elastin were recognized by this polyclonal antibody in

Extracellular matrix proteins and their proteolytic products have been shown to modulate cell motility. We have found that certain tumor cells display a chemotactic response to degradation products of the matrix protein elastin, and to an elastin-derived peptide, VGVAPG. The

Infusion of the abdominal aorta with pancreatic elastase induces aneurysms in a rat model (Anidjar/Dobrin). Because elastolysis liberates elastin degradation products (EDPs), the present experiment was carried out to test the hypothesis that an EDP alone could induce features of
