High impact information on VTN

  • Taken together, these data suggest that the snake venom disintegrin CTS is a potent inhibitor of beta3 integrin-mediated osteoclast attachment, presumably involving the VTN receptor (an alpha[v]beta3 integrin) [1].
  • Only MAb F11 inhibited attachment to immobilized CTS (IC50 = 0.41 +/- 0.12 microg/ml), suggesting that binding to CTS is mediated in part by a beta3 integrin, presumably the alpha(v)beta3 VTN receptor [1].

Anatomical context of VTN

  • Further, CTS was observed to inhibit completely osteoclast attachment to fetal bovine serum (FBS; IC50,FBS = 0.36 +/- 0.04 nM) and VTN (IC50,VTN = 0.85 +/- 0.13 nM) [1].
