The plasmas of six patients with prolonged activated partial thromboplastin times were studied in detail .
Epinephrine-activated platelets stimulating thrombin formation interact with endothelial cells activated by angiotensin ii to cause , first , smooth muscle cell proliferation , which is a histological hallmark of atherosclerosis , and , lastly , a symptomatic thrombotic occlusion-the stroke .
When the preparation was incubated with sulfatide , spontaneous activation was not observed on the condition that we used .
Prcp appears to be a huvec-associated pk activator .
Significant correlation was seen neither between activated partial thromboplastin time and f1.2 nor between activated partial thromboplastin time and prothrombin .
Plasmin-mediated activation of the contact system of coagulation appears to account , at least in part , for increases in procoagulant activity in patients treated with fibrinolytic agents .
Previously identified binding proteins include gc1qr , cytokeratin 1 , and the urokinase plasminogen activator receptor ; however , their relative contributions to binding are not yet clarified .
We found different activation efficiencies of these zymogens between human and guinea pig in both types of activation , and micro-heterogeneity of the sequence around the scissile bond among human , guinea pig and bovine hageman factors , or between human and guinea pig prekallikreins .
Thrombin activation and generation often occur with thrombolysis for acute myocardial infarction .
The activation of the contact phase of coagulation by physiologic surfaces in plasma : the effect of large negatively charged liposomal vesicles .
Heparin coating of an extracorporeal device may reduce blood activation .
As a step in elucidating the biological role of plasma kallikrein ( pk ) present in the follicular fluid of mammalian ovaries , we examined pig ovary fluid to determine its constituent activators and substrates .
These observations show a crucial role for c1-inh and alpha 2m in prorenin activation and explain , at least in part , why the ph of the acid-treatment step has to be less than 4 before irreversible activation of prorenin at neutral ph can occur .
Patients with hereditary angioedema lack c-1 inhibitor , a plasma alpha 2-glycoprotein that inhibits both the proteolytic action of c1 , the activated first component of the complement system , and the activity of components of the contact phase of coagulation : kallikrein , factor xia , and factor xiia .
Four antibodies had no effect directly on the amidolytic activity of activated f.xi ( fxia ) .
Whale plasma contained inhibitory activities against thrombin , activated stuart factor , activated pta , activated fletcher factor , and plasmin .
By analogy with studies in rat plasma this protease might be a plasminogen activator ( berstad & briseid 1982 ; johansen & briseid 1983 ) .
Detection of activation of the contact system of coagulation in_vitro and in_vivo : quantitation of activated hageman factor-c-1-inhibitor and kallikrein-c-1-inhibitor complexes by specific radioimmunoassays .
Accordingly , plasminogen activator inhibitor levels increased .
These observations suggest that zymogens of the contact system are activated during attacks of hereditary angioedema and that some of the clinical manifestations may be mediated through products of this pathway , such as kinins .
The activation reaction was ionic-strength dependent .
