Application

Arg-Gly-Asp has been used:
• to saturate the cell surface Arg-Gly-Asp (RGD) receptors and inhibit marrow stromal cell (MSC) attachment to peptide modified hydrogel
• in adhesion assay
• in inhibition assay to confirm the β1-integrin-dependency of cell adhesion
• in textile fabrication and RGD textile functionalization
• to engineer a population of human dermal fibroblasts with impaired migration
• to modify glass substrate and evaluate the behavior of human bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells (hBM-MSCs)
• in the cell culture of human mammary epithelial cells

General description

Arg-Gly-Asp (RGD) is an integrin binding site, which belongs to the class of adhesive proteins. It functions as a brain tumor targeting ligand.
