Dynamic interactions of hepatocytes with fibronectin substrata: temporal and spatial changes in the distribution of adhesive contacts fibronectin receptors, and actin filaments


, : Dynamic interactions of hepatocytes with fibronectin substrata: temporal and spatial changes in the distribution of adhesive contacts fibronectin receptors, and actin filaments. Experimental Cell Research 198(1): 179-182

We have studied the interactions, over several hours, of adult rat hepatocytes with fibronectin substrata in vitro by interference reflection microscopy and by laser scanning confocal immunomicroscopy using antisera against the fibronectin receptors, integrin alpha 5 beta 1 and nonintegrin Agp110, together with phalloidin, a specific marker for filamentous actin. Distinct alterations in the pattern of cell-substratum adhesive contacts, in the distribution of receptors, and in actin organization were observed with time in culture. Cells examined 2 to 3 h after inoculation had formed focal contacts at symmetrically distributed microextensions of the basal cell periphery that contained integrin alpha 5 beta 1, AGp110, and termini of actin filaments. On more prolonged incubation, over 5 to 6 h, increasing numbers of cells displayed a lamellar structure in close juxtaposition to the substratum circumscribing more than half of the basal cell surface and long filopodia emanating from the remaining part of the cell periphery. Integrin alpha 5 beta 1 and AGp110 were mainly concentrated at the inner and, to a lesser extent, outer boundaries of the lamellae, and actin filaments close to the basal surface overlayed the inner boundary of the adhesive lamella colocalizing with the receptors. Filopodial extensions contained neither receptor.
