Targeting the ECM/integrin signaling inhibited the activation of astrocytes in the hippocampus of epileptic rats. (A) Representative fluorescence micrographs of GFAP expression in the hippocampus of epilepsy mice with or without RGD treatment. Scale bar = 50 μm. (B) Western blot analysis of GFAP protein level in the hippocampus of epilepsy mice with or without RGD treatment (n = 3). Protein bands were quantified by densitometry and normalized to the level of GAPDH. Data represent mean ± SEM. *P < 0.05, **P < 0.01.

|Description||RGD (Arg-Gly-Asp) Peptides is a cell adhesion motif which can mimic cell adhesion proteins and bind to integrins.|
The RGD sequence is the cell attachment site of a large number of adhesive extracellular matrix, blood, and cell surface proteins, and nearly half of the over 20 known integrins recognize this sequence in their adhesion protein ligands. The RGD peptides and mimics can be used to probe integrin functions in various biological systems. Drug design based on the RGD structure may provide new treatments for diseases such as thrombosis, osteoporosis, and cancer.  RGD peptide acts as an inhibitor of integrin-ligand interactions and can induce apoptosis in the absence of signals and integrin-mediated cell clustering. Research demonstrates that RGD peptides promote apoptosis through activation of conformation changes that enhance pro-caspase-3 activation and autoprocessing.  The RGD peptide can serve as a cell adhesion site of extracellular matrix, cell surface proteins, and integrins.  In addition, RGD peptide can inhibit ACK-2 activation through cell adhesion.

1.Please make sure the liquid is clear before adding the next solvent.
2.Be sure to add the solvent(s) in order. You must ensure that the solution obtained, in the previous addition, is a clear solution before proceeding to add the next solvent. Physical methods such as vortex, ultrasound or hot water bath can be used to aid dissolving.
Calculate the mass, volume or concentration required for a solution. The Selleck molarity calculator is based on the following equation:
Mass (mg) = Concentration (mM) × Volume (mL) × Molecular Weight (g/mol)
*When preparing stock solutions, please always use the batch-specific molecular weight of the product found on the via label and MSDS / COA (available on product pages).
Calculate the dilution required to prepare a stock solution. The Selleck dilution calculator is based on the following equation:
Concentration (start) x Volume (start) = Concentration (final) x Volume (final)
This equation is commonly abbreviated as: C1V1 = C2V2 ( Input Output )
* When preparing stock solutions always use the batch-specific molecular weight of the product found on the vial label and MSDS / COA (available online).

Definitions of molecular mass, molecular weight, molar mass and molar weight:
Molecular mass (molecular weight) is the mass of one molecule of a substance and is expressed in the unified atomic mass units (u). (1 u is equal to 1/12 the mass of one atom of carbon-12)
Molar mass (molar weight) is the mass of one mole of a substance and is expressed in g/mol.
