Objective null Integrins are key regulators of various platelet functions. The pathophysiological importance of most platelet integrins has been investigated, with the exception of α5β1, a receptor for fibronectin. The aim of this study was to characterize the role of α5β1 in megakaryopoiesis, platelet function, and to determine its importance in hemostasis and arterial thrombosis. null Approach and results null We generated a mouse strain deficient for integrin α5β1 on megakaryocytes and platelets (PF4Cre-α5-/-). PF4Cre-α5-/- mice were viable, fertile and presented no apparent signs of abnormality. Megakaryopoiesis appears unaltered as evidence by a normal megakaryocytes morphology and development, which is in agreement with a normal platelet count. Expression of the main platelet receptors and the response of PF4Cre-α5-/- platelets to a series of agonists were all completely normal. Adhesion and aggregation of PF4Cre-α5-/- platelets under shear flow on fibrinogen, laminin or von Willebrand factor were unimpaired. In contrast, PF4Cre-α5-/- platelets displayed a marked decrease in adhesion, activation and aggregation on fibrillar cellular fibronectin and collagen. PF4Cre-α5-/- mice presented no defect in a tail-bleeding time assay and no increase in inflammatory bleeding in a reverse passive Arthus model and a lipopolysaccharide pulmonary inflammation model. Finally, no defects were observed in three distinct experimental models of arterial thrombosis based on ferric chloride-induced injury of the carotid artery, mechanical injury of the abdominal aorta or laser-induced injury of mesenteric vessels. null Conclusion null In summary, this study shows that platelet integrin α5β1 is a key receptor for fibrillar cellular fibronectin but is dispensable in hemostasis and arterial thrombosis.

The Src family kinases (SFKs) Src, Lyn and Fyn are essential for platelet activation and also involved in megakaryocyte (MK) development and platelet production. Platelet SFKs are inhibited by C-terminal Src kinase (Csk), which phosphorylates a conserved tyrosine in their C-terminal tail, and are activated by the receptor-type tyrosine phosphatase PTPRJ (CD148, DEP-1), which dephosphorylates the same residue. Deletion of Csk and PTPRJ in the MK lineage in mice results in increased SFK activity, ...

Platelets play a critical role in prevention of bleeding at sites of inflammation independent of “classical” hemostasis. For instance, in mouse models of immune complex-mediated skin inflammation and glomerulonephritis, early protective recruitment of platelets to the inflamed vasculature occurs

Anti-platelet drugs reduce arterial thrombosis after plaque rupture and erosion, prevent stent thrombosis and are used to prevent and treat myocardial infarction and ischaemic stroke. Some of them may also be helpful in treating less frequent diseases such as thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura. The present concise review aims to cover current and future developments of anti-platelet drugs interfering with the interaction of von Willebrand factor (VWF) with glycoprotein (GP) Ibα, and directed ag...

Abstract Platelets protect vascular integrity during inflammation. Recent evidence suggests that this action is independent of thrombus formation and requires the engagement of glycoprotein VI (GPVI), but it remains unclear how platelets prevent inflammatory bleeding. We investigated whether platelets and GPVI act primarily by preventing detrimental effects of neutrophils using models of immune complex (IC)-mediated inflammation in mice immunodepleted in platelets and/or neutrophils or deficient...

The ability of cellular fibronectin, found in the vessel wall in a fibrillar conformation, to regulate platelet functions and trigger thrombus formation remains largely unknown. In this study, we evaluated how parietal cellular fibronectin can modulate platelet responses under flow conditions. A fibrillar network was formed by mechanically stretching immobilised dimeric cellular fibronectin. Perfusion of anticoagulated whole blood over this surface resulted in efficient platelet adhesion and thr...
Objective— To investigate the roles and signaling pathways of CD40L and CD40 in platelet–platelet interactions and thrombus formation under conditions relevant for atherothrombosis. Approach and Results— Platelets from mice prone to atherosclerosis lacking CD40L ( Cd40lg −/− Apoe −/− ) showed diminished α IIb β 3 activation and α-granule secretion in response to glycoprotein VI stimulation, whereas these responses of CD40-deficient platelets ( Cd40 −/− Apoe −/− ) were not decreased. Using blood ...

Integrins are critical for platelet adhesion and aggregation during arterial thrombosis and hemostasis. Although the platelet-specific ?IIb?3 integrin is known to be crucial for these processes, the in vivo role of ?1 integrins is a matter of debate. Here we demonstrate that mice expressing reduced levels of ?1 integrins or an activation-deficient ?1 integrin show strongly reduced platelet adhesion to collagen in vitro and in a carotis ligation model in vivo. Interestingly, hypomorphic mice expr...

Background—Laminins are major components of basement membranes, well located to interact with platelets upon vascular injury. Laminin-111 (α1β1γ1) is known to support platelet adhesion but is absent from most blood vessels, which contain isoforms with the α2, α4, or α5 chain. Whether vascular laminins support platelet adhesion and activation and the significance of these interactions in hemostasis and thrombosis remain unknown. Methods and Results—Using an in vitro flow assay, we show that lamin...

Platelets play a critical role in maintaining vascular integrity during inflammation, but little is known about the underlying molecular mechanisms. Here we report that platelet immunoreceptor tyrosine activation motif (ITAM) signaling, but not GPCR signaling, is critical for the prevention of inflammation-induced hemorrhage. To generate mice with partial or complete defects in these signaling pathways, we developed a protocol for adoptive transfer of genetically and/or chemically inhibited plat...

We have engineered a transgenic mouse on a C57BL/6 background that bears a floxed Itga2 gene. The crossing of this mouse strain to transgenic mice expressing Cre recombinase driven by the megakaryocyte (MK)-specific Pf4 promoter permits the conditional knockout of Itga2 in the MK/platelet lineage. Mice lacking MK α2β1 develop normally, are fertile, and like their systemic α2β1 knockout counterparts, exhibit defective adhesion to and aggregation induced by soluble type I collagen and a delayed on...
