AbstractHighly regulated interactions between adhesion receptors on progenitor cells and their extracellular matrix ligands are essential for the control of hematopoiesis in bone marrow stroma. We have examined the relationship between alpha4beta1-integrin-mediated adhesion and growth of CD34(+) cells by assessing their adhesive and migratory patterns of proliferation in a mixture of hematopoietic growth factors in the presence of different recombinant fragments of the HepII/IIICS region of fibronectin. CD34(+) cells were isolated from cord blood and placed in culture wells containing serum-free medium and growth factors. Wells were precoated with either the H120 fragment of fibronectin, which contains three alpha4beta1-integrin binding sites, or the H0 fragment, which lacks the two highest affinity alpha4beta1 binding sequences. Proliferation of single cells of CD34(+)38(+)DR+ and CD34(+)38(-)DR+ phenotypes occurred in contact with the H120 substrate and was associated with migration. Larger numbers of cells were used to quantitate proliferative responses. Cells growing in wells coated with H120 formed attachments to the base of the wells throughout the culture period. Higher total cell counts were consistently found in wells coated with H120 compared with H0 and bovine serum albumin controls. The difference was first apparent at day 8 of culture and reached a maximum at days 11 through 13, when expansion with H120 was a mean of 1.8-fold higher than that seen with H0 (P
