Abstract

Based on this study, it can be concluded that the adhesive signal REDV promotes endothelial cell-specific adhesion when grafted to nonadhesive base materials. Furthermore, a new class of endothelial cell adhesion receptors which bind this signal was demonstrated. This new approach to endothelial cell adhesive substrates may be advantageous for vascular graft materials, where the attachment of endothelial cells is desired, but the attachment of other cell types is not.
