Proliferative Activity Of Neokyotorphinrelated Hemoglobin Fragments In Cell Cultures
Abstract:α-Hemoglobin fragments α-(133-141), α-(134-141), α-(135-141), α-(137-141), α-(134-140), α- (133-138), α-(134-140) and α-(137-138) stimulate L929 tumor cell proliferation, α-(134-141) being the most active. α-(134-141) stimulates proliferation of M3 melanoma cells, murine embryonic fibroblasts, primary cultures of red bone marrow and spleen cells. In L929 cells the effect of α-(134-141) is cell density independent; in M3 cells α-(137-141) and α-(134-141) are most active at density 10,000 cells / well (96 well plate) independently on FBS content.

More about this publication?
- Protein & Peptide Letters publishes short papers in all important aspects of protein and peptide research, including structural studies, recombinant expression, function, synthesis, enzymology, immunology, molecular modeling, drug design etc. Manuscripts must have a significant element of novelty, timeliness and urgency that merit rapid publication. Reports of crystallisation, and preliminary structure determinations of biologically important proteins are acceptable. Purely theoretical papers are also acceptable provided they provide new insight into the principles of protein/peptide structure and function.
