Inhibitors of autoactivation of plasma hyaluronan-binding protein (factor VII activating protease).

Abstract

Plasma hyaluronan-binding protein (PHBP), a serine protease that can activate coagulation factor VII and prourokinase, circulates in a single-chain form (pro-PHBP) and autoproteolytically converts to an active two-chain form with the aid of an effector such as spermidine and heparin. It has been postulated that PHBP plays roles in regulating inflammation… (More)
