Description: VR-BP exhibits pro-angiogenic effects on endothelial cells when presented in soluble form.soluble VR-BP exhibits agonistic effects similar to VEGF, but covalent immobilization of VR-BP leads to antagonism of VEGF signaling.This context dependence between soluble and immobilized VR-BP was identified using a SAM array platform to rigorously control cell-substrate interactions, and systematically probe for the effects of immobilized VR-BP on endothelial cell attachment, proliferation, and tubulogenesis. Based on these findings we hypothesize that covalent immobilization of VR-BP, and potentially other ligands that bind growth factor receptors, may be capable of interfering with growth factor receptor dimerization and subsequent signal transduction. These results suggest a new mechanism for regulating growth factor signaling that may be useful to control specific biological processes, such as angiogenesis.
