textabstractSummary: The blood vessel wall has a number of self-healing properties, enabling it to minimize blood loss and prevent or overcome infections in the event of vascular trauma. Endothelial cells prepackage a cocktail of hemostatic, inflammatory and angiogenic mediators in their unique secretory organelles, the Weibel–Palade bodies (WPBs), which can be immediately released on demand. Secretion of their contents into the vascular lumen through a process called exocytosis enables the endo...

The objective of our study was to evaluate the association between peptidylarginine deiminase 4 (PAD4) concentration and its polymorphisms with mortality in patients with septic shock. We prospectively evaluated 175 patients aged over 18 years with septic shock upon intensive care unit (ICU) admission. However, 48 patients were excluded. Thus, 127 patients were enrolled in the study. At the time of the patients' enrollment, demographic information was recorded. Blood samples were taken within th...

Nicotinamide-N-methyltransferase (NNMT) catalyzes the irreversible methylation of nicotinamide (NAM) to form N-methyl nicotinamide using S-adenosyl methionine as a methyl donor. NNMT is implicated in several chronic disease conditions, including cancers, kidney disease, cardiovascular disease, and Parkinson’s disease. Although phosphorylation of NNMT in gastric tumors is reported, the functional effects of this post-translational modification has not been investigated. We previously reported tha...

Recent studies have suggested that excessive formation of neutrophil extracellular traps (NETs) plays a critical role in the pathogenesis of sepsis. Although elevation of the plasma level of cell-free DNA (cf-DNA) has been reported in sepsis patients, there has been little direct measurement of circulating free NETs such as myeloperoxidase-conjugated DNA (MPO-DNA). The objectives of this study were to detect NETs in the bloodstream of patients with septic shock, and to assess the correlations of...

Increasing evidence indicates that inflammation can cause thrombosis by a von Willebrand factor (VWF)-mediated mechanism that includes endothelial activation, secretion of VWF, assembly of hyperadhesive VWF strings and fibers, cleavage by ADAMTS13, and adhesion and deposition of VWF-platelet thrombi in the vasculature. This mechanism appears to contribute to thrombosis not only in small vessels, but also in large vessels. Inflammation and VWF contribute to atherogenesis and may contribute to art...

Summary Increased protein citrullination is linked to various diseases including rheumatoid arthritis (RA), lupus, and cancer. Citrullinated autoantigens, a hallmark of RA, are recognized by anti-citrullinated protein antibodies (ACPAs) which are used to diagnose RA. ACPA-recognizing citrullinated enolase, vimentin, keratin, and filaggrin are also pathogenic. Here, we used a chemoproteomic approach to define the RA-associated citrullinome. The identified proteins include numerous serine protease...

Force-regulated cleavage of A2 domain of von Willebrand factor (vWF) by ADAMTS13 is a key event in preventing thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura (TTP). Recognition and cleavage depend on cooperative and modular contacts between several ADAMTS13 subdomains and discrete segments of vWF A2 domain. Spacer domain of ADAMTS13 contains an important exosite interacting with α6 helix of unfold A2 domain, but it remains unclear whether stretching of α6 regulates binding to spacer. To understand the molec...

Citrullination is a posttranslational modification of arginine catalyzed by five peptidylarginine deiminases (PADs) in humans. The loss of a positive charge may cause structural or functional alterations, and while the modification has been linked to several diseases, including rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and cancer, its physiological or pathophysiological roles remain largely unclear. In part, this is owing to limitations in available methodology to robustly enrich, detect, and localize the modif...

ADAMTS13 (a disintegrin and metalloprotease with a thrombospondin type-1 motif, member 13) and von Willebrand factor (VWF) can be considered as scale weights which control platelet adhesion during primary haemostasis. In a very uncommon condition designated thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura (TTP), functional absence of ADAMTS13 tips the balance toward VWF-mediated platelet adhesion in the microcirculation. TTP is associated with a high mortality and arises from either a congenital or acquired ...

Neutrophil extracellular traps (NETs) have recently emerged as a newly recognized contributor to venous and arterial thrombosis. These strands of DNA extruded by activated or dying neutrophils, decorated with various protein mediators, become solid-state reactors that can localize at the critical interface of blood with the intimal surface of diseased arteries and propagate and amplify the regional injury. NETs thus furnish a previously unsuspected link between inflammation, innate immunity, thr...

Enhancing skin allograft longevity lessens the need for new allografts before optimal intervention is available. Reduced activity of ADAMTS13 (an enzyme that cleaves the pro-thrombotic and proinflammatory von Willebrand factor) and presence of neutrophil extracellular traps (NETs) have been implicated in liver and lung allograft failures. The effect of ADAMTS13 treatment and the impact of NETs on skin allografts, however, remain unexplored. Here, we adopted a murine model of complete mismatch fu...

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the relationship between primary femoral head necrosis (ONFH) and an ABO blood group. METHODS: This study was a retrospective case-control trial. An analysis of the clinical data of an ABO blood group with 516 patients (case group) with ONFH and 489 limb-fracture patients (control group) without previous hip pain was obtained from the Second Hospital of Shanxi Medical University from November 2015 to November 2018. The clinical data included gender, age, height, weight,...

Abstract Neutrophil extracellular traps (NETs) are DNA and histone-based networks enriched with granule-derived proteins cast out by neutrophils in response to various inflammatory stimuli. Another molecular network, fibrin is the primary protein scaffold that holds both physiological blood clots and pathological thrombi together. There is mounting evidence that NETs and fibrin form a composite network within thrombi: in the past 10 years, a variety of molecular pathways have been revealed that ...
Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) is an autoimmune syndrome of unknown etiology, characterized by multi-organ inflammation and clinical heterogeneity. SLE affects mostly women and is associated with a high risk of cardiovascular disease. As the therapeutic management of SLE improved, a pattern of early atherosclerotic disease became one of the hallmarks of late disease morbidity and mortality. Neutrophils emerged as important players in SLE pathogenesis and they are associated with increased ri...

Neutrophil extracellular traps (NETs) are web-like DNA structures decorated with histones and cytotoxic proteins that are released by activated neutrophils to trap and neutralize pathogens during the innate immune response, but also form in and exacerbate sterile inflammation. Peptidylarginine deiminase 4 (PAD4) citrullinates histones and is required for NET formation (NETosis) in mouse neutrophils. While the in vivo impact of NETs is accumulating, the cellular events driving NETosis and the rol...
