Latent tissue plasminogen activator produced by human endothelial cells in culture: evidence for an enzyme-inhibitor complex

Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America
E G Levin


Conditioned medium from cultures of human umbilical vein endothelial cells was analyzed for the presence of tissue plasminogen activator (tPA) and urokinase. Immunoprecipitation studies using metabolically labeled conditioned medium and anti-tPA IgG revealed a single band on autoradiographs corresponding to a Mr of 100,000. No bands were observed after immunoprecipitation with anti-urokinase IgG. The Mr 100,000 tPA was found to be inactive and did not bind to fibrin clots. However, exposure of this tPA to 1% NaDodSO4 resulted in the appearance of plasminogen activator activity with no apparent change in its Mr. Treatment with 10 mM diisopropylfluorophosphate prior to NaDodSO4 activation did not inhibit the NaDodSO4-induced appearance of plasminogen activator activity, indicating that the active site was not available for diisopropylfluorophosphate binding. The possibility that the properties of this Mr 100,000 tPA reflected a tPA-inhibitor complex was examined. Attempts to dissociate such a complex by denaturation, reduction, or extremes of temperature were not successful. However, after treatment of conditioned medium with 1 M hydroxylamine in the presence of 0.1% NaDodSO4, the Mr of the anti-tPA immunoprecipitable material de...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Evolution of Pluripotency

Pluripotency refers to the ability of a cell to develop into three primary germ cell layers of the embryo. This feed focuses on the mechanisms that underlie the evolution of pluripotency. Here is the latest research.

Nuclear Pore Complex in ALS/FTD

Alterations in nucleocytoplasmic transport, controlled by the nuclear pore complex, may be involved in the pathomechanism underlying multiple neurodegenerative diseases including Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and Frontotemporal Dementia. Here is the latest research on the nuclear pore complex in ALS and FTD.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.


Microbicides are products that can be applied to vaginal or rectal mucosal surfaces with the goal of preventing, or at least significantly reducing, the transmission of sexually transmitted infections. Here is the latest research on microbicides.

Applications of Molecular Barcoding

The concept of molecular barcoding is that each original DNA or RNA molecule is attached to a unique sequence barcode. Sequence reads having different barcodes represent different original molecules, while sequence reads having the same barcode are results of PCR duplication from one original molecule.
