Endothelial cells are central in fibrinolysis because of their high production of both activators (t-PA, uPA) and inhibitors (PAI-1). The t-PA and PAI-1 synthesis could be regulated by signals transduction at several cellular levels. The purpose of this in vitro study, on cultured endothelial cells, was to explore the receptor/second messenger regulation of(More)
Endothelial cells play a central role in fibrinolysis due to their production of both tissue plasminogen activator (t-PA) and plasminogen activator inhibitor type-1 (PAI-1). The purpose of this study was to test the hypothesis that the production of t-PA and PAI-1 from human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVEC) and from human adult vein endothelial(More)
Endothelial cells (EC) produce prostacyclin (PGI2) in high quantities which at the luminal surface decreases platelet aggregation and adhesion and basal to the cell relaxes smooth muscle cells (SMC). Connections have been reported between prostacyclin production, hypertension and the degree of adrenergic activation. The present study tested the hypothesis(More)
Thrombin can regulate the-fibrinolytic system by increasing the endothelial production of both tissue plasminogen activator (t-PA) and plasminogen activator inhibitor type-1 (PAI-1). The thrombin receptor transducts signals through the GTP-binding protein system, the classical pathway being the Galpha q-protein. The purpose of the present study was to(More)
