Synthetic peptides derived from the basement membrane protein laminin promote heparin binding and human keratinocyte adhesion

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review

Abstract

In this study, normal human keratinocytes were isolated from neonatal foreskins and cultured in nutrient keratinocyte basal medium (Clonetics) supplemented with 5 × 10-7 M hydrocortisone, 5 μg/ml insulin, 10 ng/ml epidermal growth factor, and 140 μg/ml protein of bovine pituitary extract. Laminin was isolated from the murine Engelbreth-Holm-Swarm tumor and -20′$mer peptides were chemically synthesized and HPLC-purified. It is shown that the peptides have potential uses in wound healing and biocompatibility, whereby surfaces or wound beds themselves, treated with the peptides may promote keratinocyte cell adhesion and reepithelialization.
