Despite the advances in pre-, peri- andpost-operative medical care of colorectal carcinoma patients, the prognosis has improved only marginally over recent decades. Thus, additional prognostic indicators would be of great clinical value to select patients for adjuvant therapy. In previous studies we found that colorectal carcinomas have a marked...

Plasmin-mediated extracellular proteolysis has been implicated in the degradation of bone in normal and pathological conditions. Normal and malignant osteoblasts can produce both tissue-type plasminogen activator (t- PA) and urokinase-type plasminogen activator (u-PA). We have used the osteosarcoma cell line MG63 to address the question of...

The aim of the present study was to investigate whether hypothyroidism would affect the components of the rat plasma fibrinolytic system. Hypothyroidism was induced by feeding rats a thiouracil-containing diet for 2 weeks. During this period, half of the animals received subcutaneous injections of L-thyroxine (20 μg/kg daily) to restore thyroid...

Endothelial cells play an important role in the regulation of fibrinolysis by the production of several key regulatory proteins. The cytokines tumor necrosis factor (TNF), lymphotoxin, and interleukin-1 (IL-1), but not interleukin-6, increase the production of plasminogen activator inhibitor-1 (PAI-1) by endothelial cells, whereas they have no...

Several investigators have reported that tumor necrosis factor (TNF) can alter the production of plasminogen activator type-1 (PAI-1) and plasminogen activators (PAs) by endothelial cells in vitro. We have examined the in vivo effects of recombinant human TNF administration on fibrinolysis as assessed by parameters in plasma during a 24-hour...

In 22 human tumor cell lines the regulation of production of plasminogen activators urokinase (u-PA) and tissue-type (u-PA) and their inhibitors PAI-1 and PAI-2 was studied. These four components may determine the net plasminogen activator activity, which is often associated with tumor development and metastatic processes. The amount of specific...

The tissue-specific distribution of tissue-type and urokinase-type plasminogen activator (t-PA and u-PA) and their inhibitor type 1 (PAI-1) was analyzed at mRNA level in five major rat organ tissues. t-PA mRNA was detected in lung, kidney, heart, and liver. u-PA mRNA was detected in kidney and lung. Presence of PA mRNA correlated with the...

Confluent cultures of endothelial cells from human umbilical cord were used to study the effect of activated human protein C (APC) on the production of plasminogen activators, plasminogen activator-inhibitor, and factor VIII-related antigen. Addition of APC to the cells in a serum-free medium did not affect the production of tissue-type...
