Resumo

Investigations determined if extracellular matrix of endothelial cells (EC) is a platform for HK assembly and PK activation. In buffers containing bovine serum albumin, biotin-HK binding to ECV304 cells or their matrix requires > 50 µM added Zn2+. Ortho-phenanthroline or a HK domain 5 peptide blocks HK binding. Binding to umbilical vein EC or matrix, but not ECV304 cells or matrix, is mediated by cytokeratin 1. Biotin-HK binds to ECV304 cells or matrix with a Kyd of 15.8 or 9.0 nM and a Bmax of 2.6x107 or 2.4x107 sites/cell, respectively. PK activation on ECV304 cells or matrix is blocked by antipain or SBTI and corn trypsin inhibitor partially inhibits kallikrein formation. PK activation occurs on ECV304 cells or matrix prepared without serum or in human factor XII deficient serum, indicating that the PK activator is not factor XIIa. EC matrix promotes plasminogen activation after the assembly of HK, PK and pro-urokinase. These studies indicate that matrix of various EC has the ability to assemble HK allowing for PK activation and subsequent activities. (AU)
