PEPTITE-2000® is a synthetic peptide containing the RGD cell attachment sequence found in fibronectin, vitronectin and many other matrix and serum proteins. This RGD peptide has been specifically engineered to spontaneously adhere to a variety of surfaces such as polystyrene (either tissue culture treated or non-treated), hollow fibers made of cellulose, glass, polycarbonate membranes and many other materials. This binding is mediated via a hydroscopic C-terminal sequence. The RGD motif is present at the N-terminal end of the peptide, allowing for optimal cell attachment via integrin receptors.
