Endothelial cell production of anticoagulant heparan sulfate (HS(act)) is controlled by the Hs3st1 gene, which encodes the rate-limiting enzyme heparan sulfate 3-O-sulfotransferase-1 (3-OST-1). In vitro, HS(act) dramatically enhances the neutralization of coagulation proteases by antithrombin. The in vivo role of HS(act) was evaluated by generating(More)
The pathogenesis of the amyloid deposition diseases is poorly understood. The CE/J mouse, which is naturally protected from amyloid A (AA) protein amyloidosis, has provided a tool to study mechanisms that may be implicated in amyloid deposition diseases by means of comparison of findings with those in an AA-susceptible mouse strain. We have compared(More)
