Viewed in its totality, anastrozole seems to enhance the focal adhesion protein vinculin and integrin [beta]5 expression at day 6 suggesting the interpretation that anastrozole is implantation friendly as also evidenced by its high implantation rates (Mwakikunga & Hosie).

However, because of their occasional unsatisfactory performance, researchers used heat shock protein 60 (Hsp60) as a receptor for Listeria adhesion protein LAP.
On the other hand, the polarity and the density of scaffold surface charges should have significant effects on the adsorption of adhesion protein and hence cell reaction and tissue formation, which are all important considerations for the formation of tissue regeneration.

Five proteins were included in a final model: one plasma protein, two cytokine/chemokines, one cell adhesion protein, and one peroxidase.
However, because of their occasional unsatisfactory performance, researchers used heat shock protein 60 (Hsp60), a eukaryotic mitochondrial chaperon protein, as a receptor for Listeria adhesion protein LAP.
