Purification of avb3 integrin from human placenta with successive usage of two affinity sorbents - immobilized monoclonal antibodies to avb3 integrin and immobilized RGD-containing decapeptid allowed to purify this integrin’s partially degraded fraction, that was nevertheless able to interact with its ligand. During the incubation of partially degraded avb3 integrin at 37°C its further degradation went on. Addition of serine proteinase inhibitors: (phenylmethilsulfonyl fluoride, leupeptin and aprotinin) completely suppressed integrin further degradation of avb3. In preparations of intact and partially degraded avb3 integrin specific activity of two serine proteinaes - urokinase and dipeptidilpeptidase IV - was discovered. avb3 integrin, undergoing limited proteolysis, had lesser affinity towards RGD peptide, thar intact integrin. The results show, that avb3 integin from human placenta co-purifies with serine proteinases. It is suggested that a definite part of functionally active avb3 integin, extracted from human placenta by triton X-100, forms a stable complex with serine proteinases
