Takara's Fibronectin Receptor Binding Peptides are synthetic peptides used for fibronectin receptor binding experiments. Two versions are available. The first, Fibronectin Receptor Binding Peptide (GRGDSP) (Cat. # SP001) contains the arginine-glycine-aspartic acid (RGD) cell adhesion sequence, enabling its binding to fibronectin receptors. This peptide can be used as a competitive inhibitor of fibronectin for adhesion-blocking studies. Fibronectin Receptor Binding Peptide (GRGESP) (Cat. # SP002) contains a glutamic acid (E) in place of the aspartic acid (D). This single amino acid substitution prevents the binding of Cat. # SP002 with fibronectin receptors, making this peptide a suitable non-inhibitory control for cell adhesion experiments using fibronectin.
