Tissue factor pathway inhibitor (TFPI), the major downregulator of procoagulant activity of the tissue factor-factor VIIa complex (TF. FVIIa), is synthesized and constitutively secreted by endothelial cells (ECs). Here we describe the in vitro effects of heparin on the cellular localization, gene expression, and release of TFPI in human ECs in culture. Both(More)
Fluid flow modulates the synthesis and secretion by endothelial cells (ECs) of several proteins that control the hemostatic properties of the vessel wall. Tissue factor pathway inhibitor (TFPI), also synthesized by ECs, is the main downregulator of tissue factor-dependent procoagulant activity. In the present study, we investigated the effect of(More)
The results of experiments performed in recent years on board facilities such as the Space Shuttle/Spacelab have demonstrated that many cell systems, ranging from simple bacteria to mammalian cells, are sensitive to the microgravity environment, suggesting gravity affects fundamental cellular processes. However, performing well-controlled experiments aboard(More)
