Cell adhesion strength is important to cell survival, proliferation, migration, and mechanotransduction, yet changes in endothelial cell adhesion strength have not yet been examined in diseases such as diabetes with high rates of cardiovascular complications. We therefore investigated porcine aortic endothelial cell adhesion strength on native and glycated collagen-coated substrates and in low, normal, and high glucose culture using a spinning disc apparatus. Adhesion strength increased by 30 dynes/cm(2) in cells on glycated collagen as compared to native collagen. Attachment studies revealed that cells use higher adhesion strength α(v) β(3) integrins to bind to glycated collagen instead of the typical α(2) β(1) integrins used to bind to native collagen. Similarly, endothelial cells cultured in low and high glucose had 15 dynes/cm(2) higher adhesion strength than cells in normal glucose after two days. Increased adhesion strength was due to elevated VEGF release and intracellular PKC in low and high glucose cells, respectively. Thus glucose increased endothelial cell adhesion strength via different underlying mechanisms. These adhesion strength changes could contribute to diabetic vascular disease, including accelerated atherosclerosis and disordered angiogenesis. J. Cell. Physiol. © 2012 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
