Biological Activity

Description RGD (Arg-Gly-Asp) Peptides is a cell adhesion motif which can mimic cell adhesion proteins and bind to integrins.
Integrin [1]
In vitro

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. [1] 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. [2] The RGD peptide can serve as a cell adhesion site of extracellular matrix, cell surface proteins, and integrins. [3] In addition, RGD peptide can inhibit ACK-2 activation through cell adhesion.

Protocol (from reference)

Cell Research:


  • Cell lines: HLE cell line
  • Concentrations: 0.1, 0.3, 1.0 and 2.0 mg/ml
  • Incubation Time: 90 min
  • Method:

    The cells were seeded at approximately 2.6 × 104 /well on each ECM-coated 24-well plate in the medium containing the monotype of GRGDSP RGD peptide at 0 (control), 0.1, 0.3, 1.0 and 2.0 mg/ml. After 90 min of incubation, the floating cells were removed by washing twice with Ca 2+ -Mg 2+ -free phosphate-buffered saline. Then the attached cells were dissociated with trypsin-EDTA solution. The number of cells attached at each concentration of peptide was counted using a hemocytometer.

Method for preparing DMSO master liquid: mg drug pre-dissolved in μL DMSO ( Master liquid concentration mg/mL, Please contact us first if the concentration exceeds the DMSO solubility of the batch of drug. )

Method for preparing in vivo formulation: Take μL DMSO master liquid, next addμL PEG300, mix and clarify, next addμL Tween 80, mix and clarify, next add μL ddH2O, mix and clarify.

Method for preparing in vivo formulation: Take μL DMSO master liquid, next add μL Corn oil, mix and clarify.

Note: 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.
