An endogenous family of proteins belonging to the serpin superfamily that neutralizes the action of thrombin. Six naturally occurring antithrombins have been identified and are designated by Roman numerals I to VI. Of these, Antithrombin I (see FIBRIN) and ANTITHROMBIN III appear to be of major importance.
A highly acidic mucopolysaccharide formed of equal parts of sulfated D-glucosamine and D-glucuronic acid with sulfaminic bridges. The molecular weight ranges from six to twenty thousand. Heparin occurs in and is obtained from liver, lung, mast cells, etc., of vertebrates. Its function is unknown, but it is used to prevent blood clotting in vivo and vitro, in the form of many different salts.

Antithrombin III Deficiency
Protein S Deficiency
An autosomal dominant disorder showing decreased levels of plasma protein S antigen or activity, associated with venous thrombosis and pulmonary embolism. PROTEIN S is a vitamin K-dependent plasma protein that inhibits blood clotting by serving as a cofactor for activated PROTEIN C (also a vitamin K-dependent protein), and the clinical manifestations of its deficiency are virtually identical to those of protein C deficiency. Treatment with heparin for acute thrombotic processes is usually followed by maintenance administration of coumarin drugs for the prevention of recurrent thrombosis.

Encyclopedias as Topic
A family of serine proteinase inhibitors which are similar in amino acid sequence and mechanism of inhibition, but differ in their specificity toward proteolytic enzymes. This family includes alpha 1-antitrypsin, angiotensinogen, ovalbumin, antiplasmin, alpha 1-antichymotrypsin, thyroxine-binding protein, complement 1 inactivators, antithrombin III, heparin cofactor II, plasminogen inactivators, gene Y protein, placental plasminogen activator inhibitor, and barley Z protein. Some members of the serpin family may be substrates rather than inhibitors of SERINE ENDOPEPTIDASES, and some serpins occur in plants where their function is not known.

Anticoagulant heparan sulfate precursor structures in F9 embryonal carcinoma cells. (1/701)To understand the mechanisms that control anticoagulant heparan sulfate (HSact) biosynthesis, we previously showed that HSact production in the F9 system is determined by the abundance of 3-O-sulfotransferase-1 as well as the size of the HSact precursor pool. In this study, HSact precursor structures have been studied by characterizing [6-3H]GlcN metabolically labeled F9 HS tagged with 3-O-sulfates in vitro by 3'-phosphoadenosine 5'-phospho-35S and purified 3-O-sulfotransferase-1. This later in vitro labeling allows the regions of HS destined to become the antithrombin (AT)-binding sites to be tagged for subsequent structural studies. It was shown that six 3-O-sulfation sites exist per HSact precursor chain. At least five out of six 3-O-sulfate-tagged oligosaccharides in HSact precursors bind AT, whereas none of 3-O-sulfate-tagged oligosaccharides from HSinact precursors bind AT. When treated with low pH nitrous or heparitinase, 3-O-sulfate-tagged HSact and HSinact precursors exhibit clearly different structural features. 3-O-Sulfate-tagged HSact hexasaccharides were AT affinity purified and sequenced by chemical and enzymatic degradations. The 3-O-sulfate-tagged HSact hexasaccharides exhibited the following structures, DeltaUA-[6-3H]GlcNAc6S-GlcUA-[6-3H]GlcNS3(35)S+/-6S-++ +IdceA2S-[6-3H]Glc NS6S. The underlined 6- and 3-O-sulfates constitute the most critical groups for AT binding in view of the fact that the precursor hexasaccharides possess all the elements for AT binding except for the 3-O-sulfate moiety. The presence of five potential AT-binding precursor hexasaccharides in all HSact precursor chains demonstrates for the first time the processive assembly of specific sequence in HS. The difference in structures around potential 3-O-sulfate acceptor sites in HSact and HSinact precursors suggests that these precursors might be generated by different concerted assembly mechanisms in the same cell. This study permits us to understand better the nature of the HS biosynthetic pathway that leads to the generation of specific saccharide sequences. (+info)
Exosites 1 and 2 are essential for protection of fibrin-bound thrombin from heparin-catalyzed inhibition by antithrombin and heparin cofactor II. (2/701)Assembly of ternary thrombin-heparin-fibrin complexes, formed when fibrin binds to exosite 1 on thrombin and fibrin-bound heparin binds to exosite 2, produces a 58- and 247-fold reduction in the heparin-catalyzed rate of thrombin inhibition by antithrombin and heparin cofactor II, respectively. The greater reduction for heparin cofactor II reflects its requirement for access to exosite 1 during the inhibitory process. Protection from inhibition by antithrombin and heparin cofactor II requires ligation of both exosites 1 and 2 because minimal protection is seen when exosite 1 variants (gamma-thrombin and thrombin Quick 1) or an exosite 2 variant (Arg93 --> Ala, Arg97 --> Ala, and Arg101 --> Ala thrombin) is substituted for thrombin. Likewise, the rate of thrombin inhibition by the heparin-independent inhibitor, alpha1-antitrypsin Met358 --> Arg, is decreased less than 2-fold in the presence of soluble fibrin and heparin. In contrast, thrombin is protected from inhibition by a covalent antithrombin-heparin complex, suggesting that access of heparin to exosite 2 of thrombin is hampered when ternary complex formation occurs. These results reveal the importance of exosites 1 and 2 of thrombin in assembly of the ternary complex and the subsequent protection of thrombin from inhibition by heparin-catalyzed inhibitors.

Thrombophilia as a multigenic disease. (3/701)BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Venous thrombosis is a common disease annually affecting 1 in 1000 individuals. The multifactorial nature of the disease is illustrated by the frequent identification of one or more predisposing genetic and/or environmental risk factors in thrombosis patients. Most of the genetic defects known today affect the function of the natural anticoagulant pathways and in particular the protein C system. This presentation focuses on the importance of the genetic factors in the pathogenesis of inherited thrombophilia with particular emphasis on those defects which affect the protein C system. INFORMATION SOURCES: Published results in articles covered by the Medline database have been integrated with our original studies in the field of thrombophilia. STATE OF THE ART AND PERSPECTIVES: The risk of venous thrombosis is increased when the hemostatic balance between pro- and anti-coagulant forces is shifted in favor of coagulation. When this is caused by an inherited defect, the resulting hypercoagulable state is a lifelong risk factor for thrombosis. Resistance to activated protein C (APC resistance) is the most common inherited hypercoagulable state found to be associated with venous thrombosis. It is caused by a single point mutation in the factor V (FV) gene, which predicts the substitution of Arg506 with a Gln. Arg506 is one of three APC-cleavage sites and the mutation results in the loss of this APC-cleavage site. The mutation is only found in Caucasians but the prevalence of the mutant FV allele (FV:Q506) varies between countries. It is found to be highly prevalent (up to 15%) in Scandinavian populations, in areas with high incidence of thrombosis. FV:Q506 is associated with a 5-10-fold increased risk of thrombosis and is found in 20-60% of Caucasian patients with thrombosis. The second most common inherited risk factor for thrombosis is a point mutation (G20210A) in the 3' untranslated region of the prothrombin gene. This mutation is present in approximately 2% of healthy individuals and in 6-7% of thrombosis patients, suggesting it to be a mild risk factor of thrombosis. Other less common genetic risk factors for thrombosis are the deficiencies of natural anticoagulant proteins such as antithrombin, protein C or protein S. Such defects are present in less than 1% of healthy individuals and together they account for 5-10% of genetic defects found in patients with venous thrombosis. Owing to the high prevalence of inherited APC resistance (FV:Q506) and of the G20210A mutation in the prothrombin gene, combinations of genetic defects are relatively common in the general population. As each genetic defect is an independent risk factor for thrombosis, individuals with multiple defects have a highly increased risk of thrombosis. As a consequence, multiple defects are often found in patients with thrombosis. (+info)
Acceleration of Ca2+ ionophore-induced arachidonic acid liberation by thrombin without the proteolytic action toward the receptor in human platelets. (4/701)We investigated the regulation of arachidonic acid liberation catalyzed by group-IV cytosolic phospholipase A2 (cPLA2) in human platelets upon stimulation with thrombin through interaction with protease-activated receptor-1 (PAR-1) or glycoprotein Ib. Leupeptin, a protease inhibitor, completely inhibited thrombin-induced arachidonic acid liberation and Ca2+ mobilization, with inhibition of its protease activity. However, preincubation with thrombin in the presence of leupeptin potentiated Ca2+ ionophore-induced arachidonic acid liberation. The preincubation did not affect the intracellular Ca2+ level or cPLA2 activity in response to ionomycin. Human leukocyte elastase, which cleaves glycoprotein Ib, did not inhibit the enhancement of arachidonic acid liberation by thrombin in the presence of leupeptin. However, the effect of thrombin with leupeptin was abolished by a peptide corresponding to residues 54-65 of hirudin (hirudin peptide), which impairs the binding of thrombin to PAR-1. Furthermore, Phe-Pro-Arg chloromethyl ketone (PPACK)-thrombin, which binds to platelets but has no protease activity, also enhanced Ca2+ ionophore-induced arachidonic acid liberation. In contrast, trypsin with leupeptin did not mimic the effect of thrombin with leupeptin, and furthermore trypsin-induced arachidonic acid liberation was insensitive to hirudin peptide. On the basis of the present results, we suggest that thrombin may accelerate cPLA2-catalyzed arachidonic acid liberation through non-proteolytic action toward PAR-1 but not toward glycoprotein Ib in co-operation with the proteolytic action leading to Ca2+ mobilization.

Antithrombin activity during the period of percutaneous coronary revascularization: relation to heparin use, thrombotic complications and restenosis. (5/701)OBJECTIVES: This study evaluated changes in antithrombin (AT) activity around the time of percutaneous transluminal coronary revascularization (PTCR) with unfractionated heparin anticoagulation and the effects these changes had on major thrombotic complications of PTCR. BACKGROUND: Heparin is used during PTCR to prevent thrombosis. However, heparin, a cofactor for AT, causes AT activity to fall. AT activity <70% is associated with thrombosis. There is a prothrombotic state after heparin discontinuation that has not been well explained. METHODS: Antithrombin activity was sampled at the start and end of PTCR and the next two mornings in 250 consecutive patients. We recorded occurrence of major thrombotic events, defined as 1) major thrombotic complications of PTCR; 2) major in-lab thrombus formation; or 3) subacute occlusion. Discriminant analysis was employed to evaluate the relationship of AT activity to these events. Change in AT activity and its relationship to heparin was evaluated. Evidence of restenosis at six months was obtained. RESULTS: There were 14 major thrombotic events. Antithrombin activity <70% was strongly (p = 0.006) associated with these events. The AT activity fell significantly through the morning after PTCR when 21% of patients had AT activity <70%; AT activity did not normalize until >20 h after heparin discontinuation. Pre-PTCR use of heparin led to lower AT activity in proportion to duration of heparin use. There was no relationship between AT activity and restenosis. CONCLUSIONS: Low AT activity may contribute to major thrombotic complications of PTCR. The way heparin is used before and after PTCR is important to development of low AT activity. (+info)
Risk of venous thromboembolism and clinical manifestations in carriers of antithrombin, protein C, protein S deficiency, or activated protein C resistance: a multicenter collaborative family study. (6/701)Deficiencies of antithrombin (AT), protein C (PC) or protein S (PS), and activated protein C resistance (APCR) are very well-established coagulation defects predisposing to venous thromboembolism (VTE). We performed a retrospective cohort family study to assess the risk for VTE in individuals with AT, PC, or PS deficiency, or APCR. Five hundred thirteen relatives from 9 Italian centers were selected from 233 families in which the proband had had at least 1 episode of VTE. We calculated the incidence of VTE in the whole cohort and in the subgroups after stratification by age, sex, and defect. The overall incidence of VTE (per 100 patient-years) in the group of relatives was 0.52. It was 1.07 for AT, 0.54 for PC, 0.50 for PS, 0.30 for APCR, and 0.67 in the group with a double defect. The incidence was associated with age, but not with sex. The mean age at onset was between 30 and 40 years for all the coagulation defects. Women had the peak of incidence in the age range of 21 to 40 years, earlier than men. The lifetime risk for VTE was 4.4 for AT versus APCR, 2.6 for AT versus PS, 2.2 for AT versus PC, 1.9 for PC versus APCR, and 1.6 for PS versus APCR. AT deficiency seems to have a higher risk for VTE than the other genetic defects. There is a relation between age and occurrence of thrombosis for both men and women. The latter had the peak of incidence earlier than the former. (+info)
Structure of heparin-derived tetrasaccharide complexed to the plasma protein antithrombin derived from NOEs, J-couplings and chemical shifts. (7/701)A complex of the synthetic tetrasaccharide AGA*IM [GlcN, 6-SO3-alpha(1-4)-GlcA-beta(1-4)-GlcN,3, 6-SO3-alpha(1-4)-IdoA-alphaOMe] and the plasma protein antithrombin has been studied by NMR spectroscopy. 1H and 13C chemical shifts, three-bond proton-proton (3JH-H) and one-bond proton-carbon coupling constants (1JC-H) as well as transferred NOEs and rotating frame Overhauser effects (ROEs) were monitored as a function of the protein : ligand molar ratio and temperature. Considerable changes were observed at both 20 : 1 and 10 : 1 ratios (AGA*IM : antithrombin) in 1H as well as 13C chemical shifts. The largest changes in 1H chemical shifts, and the linewidths, were found for proton resonances (A1, A2, A6, A6', A1*, A2*, A3*, A4*) in GlcN, 6-SO3 and GlcN,3,6-SO3 units, indicating that both glucosamine residues are strongly involved in the binding process. The changes in the linewidths in the IdoA residue were considerably smaller than those in other residues, suggesting that the IdoA unit experienced different internal dynamics during the binding process. This observation was supported by measurements of 3JH-H and 1JC-H. The magnitude of the three-bond proton-proton couplings (3JH1-H2 = 2.51 Hz and 3JH4-H5 = 2.23 Hz) indicate that in the free state an equilibrium exists between 1C4 and 2S0 conformers in the ratio of approximately 75 : 25. The chair form appears the more favourable in the presence of antithrombin, as inferred from the magnitude of the coupling constants. In addition, two-dimensional NOESY and ROESY experiments in the free ligand, as well as transferred NOESY and ROESY spectra of the complex, were measured and interpreted using full relaxation and conformational exchange matrix analysis. The theoretical NOEs were computed using the geometry of the tetrasaccharide found in a Monte Carlo conformational search, and the three-dimensional structures of AGA*IM in both free and bound forms were derived. All monitored NMR variables, 1H and 13C chemical shifts, 1JC-H couplings and transferred NOEs, indicated that the changes in conformation at the glycosidic linkage GlcN, 6-SO3-alpha(1-4)-GlcA were induced by the presence of antithrombin and suggested that the receptor selected a conformer different from that in the free state. Such changes are compatible with the two-step model [Desai, U.R., Petitou, M., Bjork, I. & Olson, S. (1998) J. Biol. Chem. 273, 7478-7487] for the interaction of heparin-derived oligosaccharides with antithrombin, but with a minor extension: in the first step a low-affinity recognition complex between ligand and receptor is formed, accompanied by a conformational change in the tetrasaccharide, possibly creating a complementary three-dimensional structure to fit the protein-binding site. During the second step, as observed in a structurally similar pentasaccharide [Skinner, R., Abrahams, J.-P., Whisstock, J.C., Lesk, A.M., Carrell, R.W. & Wardell, M.R. (1997) J. Mol. Biol. 266, 601-609; Jin, L., Abrahams, J.-P., Skinner, R., Petitou, M., Pike, R. N. & Carrell, R.W. (1997) Proc. Natl Acad. Sci. USA 94, 14683-14688], conformational changes in the binding site of the protein result in a latent conformation. (+info)
Effect of thrombin inhibition in vascular dementia and silent cerebrovascular disease. An MR spectroscopy study. (8/701)BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Silent cerebrovascular disease (CVD) has been proposed as a predisposing condition for clinically overt stroke and vascular dementia. Recently, we found increased thrombin generation in silent CVD patients. Here, we report the effect of thrombin inhibition using a potent selective thrombin inhibitor on the cerebral metabolism and function in peripheral arterial occlusive disease (PAOD) patients with or without silent CVD. METHODS: We examined 17 mild chronic PAOD patients, including 2 cases of vascular dementia. We divided the patients into 2 groups: 1 was the advanced CVD group with multiple lacunar infarction and/or advanced periventricular hyperintensity detected by brain MRI (n=12), and the other was the no CVD group that had none of these abnormalities (n=5). We assessed the cerebral biochemical compounds in the deep white matter area and cerebellar hemisphere (8 cm3) by proton MR spectroscopy before and after infusion of argatroban (10 mg/d IV) over 2 hours for 7 days. RESULTS: The ratio of N-acetylasparate (NAA) to total creatine (Cre) in the deep white matter area was significantly lower in the advanced CVD group than in the no CVD group, whereas there were no significant differences in this ratio in the cerebellar hemisphere between the 2 groups. In the former group, this decreased NAA/Cre ratio significantly increased after argatroban therapy, whereas there was no change in the latter group. The 2 patients with vascular dementia showed clinical improvement with marked increases in the NAA/Cre ratio and mini-mental score. CONCLUSIONS: These results suggest that increased thrombin generation may have some pathophysiological roles in developing vascular dementia and its chronic predisposing conditions. Thrombin inhibition may break this vicious cycle and lead to clinical improvement. (+info)
A method for the differential determination of plasma antithrombins. | Journal of Clinical Pathology
A method for the differential determination of plasma antithrombins, antithrombin III and alpha2 macroglobulin, is described. The method is based on the selective inactivation of plasma alpha2 macroglobulin by treatment with 0-1 M methylamine for 10 minutes at 37 degrees C and on the observation that antithrombin III and alpha2 macroglobulin inhibited in defibrinated plasma low concentrations of thrombin without mutual interference and according to pseudo-first order reaction. In healthy subjects antithrombin III was shown to account for about 70% of the total antithrombin activity. But in patients with liver cirrhosis, where low levels of total antithrombin activity were observed, the relative contribution of antithrombin III was found to be noticeably lower.. ...

N2 - In September 2000, participants at the 4th Annual Experts Meeting of the International Cardiology Forum convened to discuss guidelines for the management of unstable angina/non-ST-elevation MI, recently published by North American and European task forces. Discussion of new recommendations for antithrombin therapy focused on the role of low-molecular-weight heparin (LMWH). Although most participants found the new guidelines largely consistent with existing data, and sufficiently adaptable to most clinical settings, there was concern that neither task force specified LMWH as the antithrombin of choice for the medical management of these patients. The new guidelines continue to endorse the use of unfractionated heparin, particularly for high-risk patients, despite the evidence for the efficacy of LMWH in this ...

Heparin was first studied in ACS in 1988 and has been a mainstay for acute ischemic heart disease therapy since then. Heparins represent a heterogeneous group of negatively charged, heavily sulfated glycosaminoglycans. Heparins have a heterogeneous effect on the coagulation cascade, although most of the effect is mediated through binding with antithrombin, causing a conformational change leading to inactivation of multiple enzymes in the coagulation cascade. While factors IXa, XIa, and XIIa are targets as well, thrombin (factor IIa) and factor Xa are the most clinically relevant. As mentioned, thrombin inhibition leads to inhibition of fibrin formation and factors needed for its cross-linking and stabilization. Heparins also have an impact on arterial and venous thrombosis by increasing vessel wall permeability and binding to von Willebrand factor, leading to some inhibition in platelet activation. Unfractionated heparin (UFH) represents a heterogeneous compound with some important limitations: ...
1azx - Proteopedia, life in 3D
Antithrombin, a plasma serpin, is relatively inactive as an inhibitor of the coagulation proteases until it binds to the heparan side chains that line the microvasculature. The binding specifically occurs to a core pentasaccharide present both in the heparans and in their therapeutic derivative heparin. The accompanying conformational change of antithrombin is revealed in a 2.9-A structure of a dimer of latent and active antithrombins, each in complex with the high-affinity pentasaccharide. Inhibitory activation results from a shift in the main sheet of the molecule from a partially six-stranded to a five-stranded form, with extrusion of the reactive center loop to give a more exposed orientation. There is a tilting and elongation of helix D with the formation of a 2-turn helix P between the C and D helices. Concomitant conformational changes at the heparin binding site explain both the initial tight binding of antithrombin to the heparans and the subsequent release of the antithrombin-protease ...

Thrombosis as a conformational disease | Haematologica
Conformational diseases are a newly recognized group of heterogeneous disorders resulting from the conformational instability of individual proteins. Such instability allows the formation of intermolecular linkages between b-sheets, to give protein aggregation and inclusion body formation. The serpin family of serine protease inhibitors provides the best-studied examples of the structural changes involved. Notably, mutations of a-1-antitrypsin result in its intracellular polymerization and accumulation in the liver leading eventually to cirrhosis. Here we consider how other conformational changes in another serpin, antithrombin, can cause its inactivation with consequent thrombosis. Thirteen different missense mutations in antithrombin are associated with either oligomer formation or with conversion of the active molecule into an inactive latent form. Each of these variant antithrombins is associated with an increased risk of thrombosis that typically occurs in an unexpectedly severe and sudden ...

Direct thrombin inhibitors after orthopedic surgery | The Hospital Leader
In this Cochrane meta-analysis, researchers analyzed the overall efficacy and safety of direct thrombin inhibitors, compared to warfarin or LMWH, in preventing VTE after orthopedic surgeries (hip and knee arthroplasty). In14 studies involving over 20,000 participants, they found no difference in efficacy between direct thrombin inhibitors, warfarin, or LMWH, but did find higher mortality and bleeding in the thrombin group compared to LMWH (but no difference between the thrombin group and warfarin) (abstract). The timing of the thrombin inhibitors also matters, as pre-operative dosing results in fewer VTEs but likely higher bleeding. Dabigatran is the oral direct thrombin inhibitor that is currently approved in Canada and throughout Europe, but US FDA approval is pending.. ...

Direct thrombin inhibitors (DTIs) represented by dabigatran were expected to be available for therapeutic use without the need for routine monitoring, in contrast to warfarin. However, clinical concerns regarding impacts of plasma dabigatran concentrations on the rate of major bleeding have been raised.1 Clinical and basic aspects of DTIs aid in studying how best to address concerns regarding bleeding risk in therapeutic use. Based on enzymatic examinations with a synthetic substrate, S-2238, it has been well recognised that dabigatran and another DTI argatroban reversibly and competitively inhibit thrombin reaction.2 ,3 However, it still remains unclear whether the type of inhibition by DTIs of thrombin reaction with S-2238 can be applied to the anticoagulant effects.. The Clauss assay is classical but most popular even now for quantification of plasma fibrinogen concentrations.4 This is based on the quantitative relationship between fibrinogen concentrations and time for fibrin clot formation ...

Argatroban - DrugBank
Argatroban is a direct, selective thrombin inhibitor. The American College of Cardiologists (ACC) recommend using bivalirudin or argatroban in patients who have had, or at risk for, heparin induced thrombocytopenia (HIT) and are undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention. Argatroban is a non-heparin anticoagulant shown to both normalize platelet count in patients with HIT and prevent the formation of thrombi. Parental anticoagulants must be stopped and a baseline activated partial thromboplastin time must be obtained prior to administering argatroban.

The highest DNA binding by 3-NBA in ES cells was observed at 10 μM after 24 h with 863 ± 74 adducts per 108 nucleotides (Fig. 3C). Interestingly, and in contrast to BaP, adduct levels for 3-NBA in MEFs were only 1.5-fold higher. (1266 ± 188 adduct per 108 nucleotides) under the same experimental conditions (Fig. 3D). DNA binding LDK378 in vivo was highest in MEFs at 10 μM after 48 h with 2478 ± 455 adducts per 108 nucleotides. Previously, in primary HUFs previously treated with 10 μM 3-NBA for 48 h, adduct levels were 680 ± 147 adducts per 108 nucleotides (Kucab et al., 2012). As 3-NBA is predominantly activated by NQO1 (Arlt et al., 2005), the expression of Nqo1 was studied in ES cells and MEFs by RT-PCR and revealed that Nqo1 mRNA expression increased in both cell types up to ∼60-fold; the induction was higher in MEFs than in ES cells ( Fig. 6C and D). This is in line with a previous study showing that Nqo1 protein levels were inducible in primary and immortal HUFs upon treatment with ...

Atrophy of Spared Gray Matter Tissue Predicts Poorer Motor Recovery and Rehabilitation Response in Chronic Stroke | Stroke
Background and Purpose-Although the motor deficit after stroke is clearly due to the structural brain damage that has been sustained, this relationship is attenuated from the acute to chronic phases. We investigated the possibility that motor impairment and response to constraint-induced movement therapy in patients with chronic stroke may relate more strongly to the structural integrity of brain structures remote from the lesion than to measures of overt tissue damage.. ...

Discovery and development of direct thrombin inhibitors - Wikipedia
Direct thrombin inhibitors (DTIs) are a class of anticoagulant drugs that can be used to prevent and treat embolisms and blood clots caused by various diseases. They inhibit thrombin, a serine protease which affects the coagulation cascade in many ways. DTIs have undergone rapid development since the 90s. With technological advances in genetic engineering the production of recombinant hirudin was made possible which opened the door to this new group of drugs. Before the use of DTIs the therapy and prophylaxis for anticoagulation had stayed the same for over 50 years with the use of heparin derivatives and warfarin which have some well known disadvantages. DTIs are still under development, but the research focus has shifted towards factor Xa inhibitors, or even dual thrombin and fXa inhibitors that have a broader mechanism of action by both inhibiting factor IIa (thrombin) and Xa. A recent review of patents and literature on thrombin inhibitors has demonstrated that the development of allosteric ...

Heparin cofactor II - Wikipedia
Heparin cofactor II (HCII), a protein encoded by the SERPIND1 gene, is a coagulation factor that inhibits IIa, and is a cofactor for heparin and dermatan sulfate (minor antithrombin). The product encoded by this gene is a serine proteinase inhibitor which rapidly inhibits thrombin in the presence of dermatan sulfate or heparin. The gene contains five exons and four introns. This protein shares homology with antithrombin and other members of the alpha 1-antitrypsin superfamily. Mutations in this gene are associated with heparin cofactor II deficiency. Heparin Cofactor II deficiency can lead to increased thrombin generation and a hypercoagulable state.

TY - JOUR. T1 - The effect of Dabigatran on select specialty coagulation assays. AU - Adcock, Dorothy M.. AU - Gosselin, Robert. AU - Kitchen, Steve. AU - Dwyre, Denis M. PY - 2013/1. Y1 - 2013/1. N2 - Dabigatran etexilate is a new oral anticoagulant that functions as a direct thrombin inhibitor. An inhibitor of thrombin has the potential to interfere with essentially all clot-based coagulation assays and select chromogenic assays, whereas the drug would not be expected to interfere in antigen-based assays. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of dabigatran on various specialized coagulation assays using normal plasma specimens with varying concentrations of dabigatran (the active form of dabigatran etexilate). We have demonstrated that samples containing therapeutic levels of dabigatran may lead to underestimation of intrinsic factor activities with abnormal activated partial thromboplastin time (aPTT) mixing study results and a false-positive factor VIII Bethesda titer; ...
Localization of anticoagulantly active heparan sulfate proteoglycans in vascular endothelium: antithrombin binding on cultured...
We have studied the interaction of 125I-antithrombin (125I-AT) with microvascular endothelial cells (RFPEC) to localize the cellular site of anticoagulantly active heparan sulfate proteoglycans (HSPG). The radiolabeled protease inhibitor bound specifically to the above HSPG with a Kd of approximately 50 nM. Confluent monolayer RFPEC cultures exhibited a linear increase in the amount of AT bound per cell for up to 16 d, whereas suspension RFPEC cultures possessed a constant number of protease inhibitor binding sites per cell for up to 5 d. These results suggest that monolayer RFPEC cultures secrete anticoagulantly active HSPG, which then accumulate in the extracellular matrix. This hypothesis was confirmed by quantitative light and EM level autoradiography which demonstrated that the AT binding sites are predominantly located in the extracellular matrix with only small quantities of protease inhibitor complexed to the cell surface. We have also pinpointed the in vivo position of anticoagulantly ...

Glial cells maintain synapses by inhibiting an activity-dependent retrograde protease signal
Glial cells regulate multiple aspects of synaptogenesis. In the absence of Schwann cells, a peripheral glial cell, motor neurons initially innervate muscle but then degenerate. Here, using a genetic approach, we show that neural activity-regulated negative factors produced by muscle drive neurodegeneration in Schwann cell-deficient mice. We find that thrombin, the hepatic serine protease central to the hemostatic coagulation cascade, is one such negative factor. Trancriptomic analysis shows that expression of the antithrombins serpin C1 and D1 is significantly reduced in Schwann cell-deficient mice. In the absence of peripheral neuromuscular activity, neurodegeneration is completely blocked, and expression of prothrombin in muscle is markedly reduced. In the absence of muscle-derived prothrombin, neurodegeneration is also markedly reduced. Together, these results suggest that Schwann cells regulate NMJs by opposing the effects of activity-regulated, muscle-derived negative factors and provide ...
Fibrin D-dimer impairs the accumulation and anticoagulant properties of heparan sulphate and stimulates secretion of...
Fibrin split product D-dimer (DD) is most probably involved in the development of vascular disorders. At 1.5 μM concentration DD inhibited the incorporation of D-[1-3H]glucosamine hydrochloride and [2-14C]acetate · Na into pericellular heparan sulphate (HS) of rabbit coronary endothelial cells without affecting other groups of glycosaminoglycans (GAGs). At the same time, DD reduced HS ability to bind antithrombin (AT) and suppressed NO production. The effect of DD on pericellular GAGs was similar to that of Nw-methyl-L-arginine, the competitive inhibitor of endothelial NO synthase (eNOS). L-Ascorbic acid, eNOS activator, increased the level of endogenous NO in the DD-treated cells, and restored HS accumulation and antithrombin binding. It is suggested that DD influence on endothelial HS may be mediated by NO production. Another effect of DD, namely, stimulation of plasminogen activator inhibitor-1 (PAI-1) secretion did not depend on the NO level. The decreased HS content, reduced anticoagulant ...

Antithrombin is a protein in the blood that helps regulate blood clot formation. Antithrombin testing is used to investigate the cause of recurrent blood clot formation (such as DVT) and to identify an antithrombin deficiency.
Notes from Dr. RW: December 2005
How can this seemingly disparate evidence be integrated with what was known before? Older data, upon which the guidelines were based, had established that thrombophilia testing was predictive of the relative risk for initial VTE. The situation is completely different for patients who have already had a spontaneous VTE. Why? It has long been known that patients with spontaneous VTE are hypercoagulable, (untreated recurrence rates of 2% to 5% per year) no matter the result of thrombophilia testing. In part this is because comprehensive laboratory testing of clinically thrombophilic patients will yield negative results---no laboratory lesion--- in about 30%-40% of cases. The thinking is that those patients have a thrombophilic state that hasnt been discovered yet. To keep it in perspective, remember that the concept of hereditary thrombophilia has been around since the discovery, in 1963, of antithrombin deficiency (Egeberg O: Inherited antithrombin deficiency causing thrombophilia. Thrombosis ...

Thrombin (Inhibitors Agonists Modulators Antagonists)-MedChemExpress.com
Thrombin is a serine protease that in humans is encoded by the F2 gene. Thrombin is an intriguing coagulation protease demonstrating an array of effects on endothelial cells, vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMC), monocytes, and platelets, all of which are involved in the pathophysiology of atherosclerosis. There is mounting evidence that thrombin acts as a powerful modulator of many processes like regulation of vascular tone, permeability, migration and proliferation of VSMC, recruitment of monocytes into the atherosclerotic lesions, induction of diverse pro-inflammatory markers, and all of these are related to the progression of cardiovascular disease. Recent studies in transgenic mice models indicate that the deletion of the natural thrombin inhibitor heparin cofactor II promotes an accelerated atherogenic state. The combined evidence points to thrombin as a pivotal contributor to vascular pathophysiology. Considering the clinical development of selective anticoagulants including direct ...

Heparin-Binding Domains in Vascular Biology | Arteriosclerosis, Thrombosis, and Vascular Biology
Heparin functions as an anticoagulant primarily through activation of AT-mediated inhibition of blood coagulation factors such as thrombin and factor Xa. Several steps are involved in the interaction of heparin with AT and serine proteases. First, a low-affinity interaction between GAG and AT takes place, mediated by a well-defined unique pentasaccharide sequence within heparin (Figure 1B). This binding generates a conformational change in the structure of AT, which enables additional interactions between AT and heparin, resulting in stronger binding. The conformational change also expels a protease reactive loop in AT.54,55 A ternary complex is formed, after which the AT interaction reverts to low-affinity binding, resulting in the release of heparin from the covalent AT-protease complex.. The structure of the heparin-binding site in AT was mapped initially through the chemical modification of specific residues, resulting in decreased heparin affinity and by studying natural recombinant ...

The heart of the matter: WHERE ARE WE WITH THE -XABANS, -GATRANS? IN ACS?
The first decade of the 21st century had seen the proliferation of a whole host of new anti-coagulants, which were touted as an alternative to the famous rat poison, warfarin. These new groups, some of whose names I have difficulty pronouncing, I often call the -xatans, and the - gatrans. They include dabigatran, apixaban, rivaroxaban, etc., etc. They are all either factor Xa inhibitors or direct thrombin inhibitors. They are expensive ( obviously more expensive than warfarin, which is dirt cheap ). After all these years of trials, what is their role. I suppose, their role in preventing DVT is established. Dabigatrans role in stroke prevention is also FDA approved, but I must say that my own reading tells me that the 110mg dose does carry with it an increase risk of bleebing, which is of great concern for us ...
