Mononuclear cells from peripheral blood of normal humans, unselected spleen cells from patients with Hodgkin's disease, and selected T and non-T lymphoid cells from normal peripheral blood and from the spleens of Hodgkin's disease patients were examined for de novo synthesis and secretion of ferritin. After precipitation of labeled lysates and supernatants(More)
Plasmin not only functions as a key enzyme in the fibrinolytic system but also directly inactivates factor VIII and other clotting factors such as factor V. However, the mechanisms of plasmin-catalyzed factor VIII inactivation are poorly understood. In this study, levels of factor VIII activity increased approximately 2-fold within 3 min in the presence of(More)
Plasminogen activators provide effective treatment for patients with acute myocardial infarction. However, paradoxical elevation of thrombin activity associated with failure of clot lysis and recurrent thrombosis has been reported. Generation of thrombin in these circumstances appears to be owing to plasmin (Plm)-induced activation of factor (F) XII. Plm(More)
The protective effect of von Willebrand factor (VWF) toward activated protein C (APC)-catalyzed inactivation of factor VIII (FVIII) has been attributed mainly to inhibition of FVIII binding to phospholipid. In the present study, we demonstrated that VWF-mediated FVIII protection from APC also results from direct inhibition of FVIII binding to APC.(More)
One of haemorrhagic toxins present in snake venoms is L-amino acid oxidase (LAO), which catalyzes the oxidative deamination of L-amino acids with the generation of hydrogen peroxide. Although it is widely accepted that LAO alters platelet function, the effects of LAO on human blood coagulation remain largely unknown. The present study demonstrated, for the(More)
Selected populations of human peripheral blood T lymphocytes, B lymphocytes, monocytes and polymorphonuclear cells were examined for their intracellular content of lactoferrin transferrin and ferritin by an indirect immunofluorescence technique. Lactoferrin was found in polymorphs but not in lymphoid cells. Two different lactoferrin staining patterns were(More)
Factor VIII (FVIII) inhibitor alloantibodies react with the A2, C2, or A3-CI domains of FVIII and inactivate FVIII activity. We recently demonstrated that an anti-C2 monoclonal antibody with a Val2248-Gly2285 epitope, inhibited factor Xa (FXa)-catalyzed FVIII activation, and that a FXa binding site for FVIII was located within residues Thr2253-Gln2270.
