Laser-induced vessel wall injury leads to rapid thrombus formation in an animal thrombosis model. The target of laser injury is the endothelium. We monitored calcium mobilization to assess activation of the laser-targeted cells. Infusion of Fluo-4 AM, a calcium-sensitive fluorochrome, into the mouse circulation resulted in dye uptake in the endothe...

Plasma microparticles (MPs, <1.5 mum) originate from platelet and cell membrane lipid rafts and possibly regulate inflammatory responses and thrombogenesis. These actions are mediated through their phospholipid-rich surfaces and associated cell-derived surface molecules. The ectonucleotidase CD39/ecto-nucleoside triphosphate diphosphohydrolase1 (E-...
Article
The endothelium serves as a metabolically active interface between the blood and underlying tissues and offers response to changes in its microenvironment. The endothelium is rapidly activated in response to stimuli associated with fluctuations in shear stress, physical trauma, oxidative stress, and thrombotic and inflammatory mediators. To study e...

The induction of thrombus formation in vivo through a laser-induced injury to the vessel wall in the living mouse has demonstrated the rapid expression of tissue factor antigen, thrombin generation and fibrin formation during thrombus formation. This thrombosis model is dominated by a tissue factor-dependent mechanism of platelet activation and fib...
Article
Extracellular nucleotide P2-receptor-mediated effects on platelets, leukocytes and endothelium are modulated by ecto-nucleotidases. These ecto-enzymes hydrolyze extracellular nucleotides to the respective nucleosides. The dominant ecto-nucleotidase expressed by the endothelium, by monocytes and vascular smooth muscle cells is CD39/NTPDase1. Ecto-nu...
