概要 We have examined whether oxidized low-density lipoprotein (ox-LDL) affects the function of tissue-factor-pathway inhibitor (TFPI), an anti-coagulant regulator in the extrinsic pathway of coagulation, in cultured human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVEC). Treatment of culture medium of HUVEC with ox-LDL, but not with native or acetylated LDLs, caused a rapid, concentration-dependent decrease in the functional activity of TFPI to inhibit Factor X activation. Ox-LDL decreased the antigen level of TFPI in the lysate of HUVEC in a time-dependent manner. It did not affect the mRNA level, but ox-LDL-dependent reduction of the TFPI antigen level in HUVEC was reversed by the simultaneous treatment of ox-LDL with bafilomycin A1, an inhibitor of the lysosomal proton pump. These results indicate that ox-LDL lessens the anti-coagulant function of TFPI through both oxidative modification and accelerated degradation of the molecule outside and inside HUVEC respectively.
