The plasma concentration of soluble adhesion receptors is increased under pathological circumstances, but their function remains enigmatic. Soluble P-selectin (sP-sel) is shed from activated platelets and endothelial cells. Mice genetically engineered to express P-selectin without the cytoplasmic tail (DeltaCT) constitutively show a 3- to 4-fold increase of sP-sel in plasma. We observed that the DeltaCT mice formed fibrin very readily. In an ex vivo perfusion chamber, there was more fibrin… CONTINUE READING
