Thrombin, a serine protease generated by the activation of the blood coagulation cascade following vessel injury, induces vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) release. However, the molecular mechanism of thrombin-induced VEGF release is largely unknown. An agonist of protease-activated receptor-1 (PAR1), SFLLRNPNDKYEPF, mimicked thrombin-induced VEGF(More)
Churg-Strauss syndrome (CSS) is a systemic disease that shows marked eosinophilia along with eosinophil infiltration in the tissue. Prolonged eosinophil survival plays an important role in the pathogenesis of CSS; however, its detailed molecular mechanism remains unclear. Discoidin domain receptor 1 (DDR1) is a receptor tyrosine kinase, and its ligand is(More)
