Abstract

Laminin, a basement membrane glycoprotein, has diverse biological activities including cell adhesion, growth, and differentiation. However, little is known concerning the signal transduction and active site involved in cell growth. In this study, we have shown that laminin and a 19-mer peptide (PA22-2) from the carboxyl-terminal end of the long arm of the laminin A chain, which was previously shown to promote cell adhesion and neurite outgrowth, stimulate thymidine incorporation and cell growth of PC12 cells. Laminin and PA22-2 (PA) were also found to induce a rapid and transient mRNA expression of c-fos and c-jun protooncogenes in PC12 cells. Further, both laminin and PA stimulated the DNA binding activity of c-Fos and c-Jun protein complex to the AP-1 site. We have also found that there is a correlation between cell growth, c-fos expression, and the ability of cell attachment to laminin or to PA in different cell types. These results suggest that the PA sequence is a potent site in laminin for both signal transduction and cell growth.
