摘要

The interaction of tumor cells with extracellular matrix components such as laminin, fibronectin, and collagen has been shown to be mediated through a family of cell-surface receptors that specifically recognize an arginine-glycine-aspartic acid amino acid sequence within each protein. Triflavin, a 7.5 kDa cysteine-rich polypeptide purified from Trimeresurus flavoviridis snake venom, belongs to a family of arginine-glycine-aspartic acid-containing peptides termed disintegrins that have been isolated from the venoms of various vipers and shown to be potent inhibitors of platelet aggregation. In this study, we showed that triflavin inhibited adhesion of human hepatoma J-5 cells to extracellular matrices (fibronectin, vitronectin, fibrinogen, and collagen type I) in a dose-dependent manner. On the other hand, triflavin exerted a limited inhibitory effect on cell attachment to collagen type IV and laminin (<or = 40%). Triflavin is approximately 1000 times more potent than glycine-arginine-glycine-aspartic acid-serine at inhibiting cell adhesion. When immobilized on plate, triflavin promoted J-5 cell attachment; this attachment was inhibited by glycine-arginine-glycine-aspartic acid-serine. In addition, triflavin labeled with iodine 125 binds to J-5 cells in a saturable manner and its binding was also inhibited by glycine-arginine-glycine-aspartic acid-serine. Its Kd value was estimated to be 3.9 x 10(-7) mol/L and the number of binding sites was around 60,000 per cell. Furthermore, triflavin did not affect tritiated thymidine uptake during a 3-day incubation.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS)
