Blood cell progenitors were scanned for the presence of the coagulation starter protein tissue factor (TF) by immunoelectron microscopy. Thereby, substantial TF expression was observed in the precursor cells of eosinophils. TF levels were lower in basophil precursors and barely detectable in neutrophil progenitors. In peripheral blood immediately processed(More)
Blood coagulation in vivo is initiated by factor VII (FVII) binding to its cellular receptor tissue factor (TF). FVII is the only known ligand for TF, so it was expected that FVII-deficient embryos would have a similar phenotype to TF-deficient embryos, which have defective vitello-embryonic circulation and die around 9.5 days of gestation. Surprisingly, we(More)
An in vitro model consisting of endothelium grown on collagen was used to investigate how mononuclear phagocytes traverse endothelium in the basal-to-apical direction (reverse transmigration), a process that mimics their migration across vascular and/or lymphatic endothelium during atherosclerosis and resolution of inflammation, respectively. Monoclonal(More)
Iatrogenic, isolated weakness or paralysis of the extensor hallucis longus muscle is a common complication in patients who have had a proximal tibial and fibular osteotomy. To investigate why this complication occurs, we dissected the deep peroneal nerve and neighboring structures, such as the tibia and fibula and the muscles of the leg, in twenty-nine(More)
