ABSTRACT Selectins mediate leukocyte rolling and prime leukocytes for integrin-mediated leukocyte adhesion. However, neither the in vivo importance of nor the signaling pathway by which selectin-mediated integrin activation occurs has been determined. We report here that P-selectin-deficient mice manifested impaired leukocyte adhesion, which was 'rescued' by soluble P-selectin. Mechanistically, the cytoplasmic domain of P-selectin glycoprotein ligand 1 formed a constitutive complex with Nef-associated factor 1. After binding of P-selectin, Src kinases phosphorylated Nef-associated factor 1, which recruited the phosphoinositide-3-OH kinase p85-p110delta heterodimer and resulted in activation of leukocyte integrins. Inhibition of this signal-transduction pathway diminished the adhesion of leukocytes to capillary venules and suppressed peritoneal infiltration of leukocytes. Our data demonstrate the functional importance of this newly identified signaling pathway mediated by P-selectin glycoprotein ligand 1.

    ABSTRACT: In the context of plaque progression, platelet hyperactivity associated with hyperlipidemia contributes to the development of a pro-thrombotic state. In this context, it has been demonstrated that advanced glycation end products (AGEs) significantly increases platelet activation and receptor for AGEs (RAGE) expression at the platelet surface membrane. In addition to AGEs, other ligands (S100, HMGB1 and amyloid β, among others) of RAGE have raised particular attention in platelet activation. Therefore, in this article we describe platelet hyperactivity by AGEs via RAGE-independent and RAGE-dependent pathways.

    ABSTRACT: Platelet activation is known to be associated with the release of a vast array of chemokines and proinflammatory lipids which induce pleiotropic effects on a wide variety of tissues and cells, including leukocytes. During thrombosis, the recruitment of leukocytes to activated platelets is considered an important step which not only links thrombosis to inflammatory responses but may also enhance procoagulant state. This phenomenon is highly regulated and influenced by precise mutual interactions between the cells at site of vascular injury and thrombi formation. Platelet-leukocyte interaction involves a variety of mediators including adhesion molecules, chemokines and chemoattractant molecules, shed proteins, various proinflammatory lipids and other materials. The current review addresses the detailed mechanisms underlying platelet-leukocyte crosstalk. This includes their adhesive interactions, transcellular metabolisms, induced tissue factor activity and neutrophil extracellular traps formation as well as the impacts of these phenomena in modulation of the proinflammatory and procoagulant functions in a reciprocal manner that enhances the physiological responses.
