Intensive plasma exchange increases a disintegrin and metalloprotease with thrombospondin motifs-13 activity and reverses organ dysfunction in children with thrombocytopenia-associated multiple organ failure.
George (2007) explains that ADAMTS 13 is an acronym for a disintegrin and metalloprotease with thrombospondin repeats that acts as a Von Willebrand Factor, VWF-cleaving protease.
Several receptors including CD36 (6), thrombospondin (7), intercellular adhesion molecule-1 (8), vascular cell adhesion molecule, and E-selectin (9) mediate this interaction.
The insert included thrombospondin related adhesive protein (TRAP), a well characterized pre-erythrocytic antigen and a string of T-cell epitopes (called ME for multiple epitope).
Gene encoding the collagen type I and thrombospondin receptor CD36 is located on chromosome 7q11.
A novel brain-specific p53-target gene, BAI1, containing thrombospondin type 1 repeats inhibits experimental angiogenesis.
Initially when platelets touch the damaged or rough endothelium several key ingredients including Tissue Factor (TF), collagen, fibronectin, thrombospondin, von Willebrand factor, laminins and microfibrils come into play (Fischer 2007; Hedges et al 2007 p 138).
Colocalization of thrombospondin and syndecan during murine development.
Independent studies in 1996 by Furlan (10) and Tsai (12) identified V WF-cp as 1 of 19 members of the ADAMTS (A Disintegrinlike And Metalloprotease domain with ThromboSpondin type motifs) family of metalloproteases, designated ADAMTS-13.

Celebrex, a cyclooxygenase-2 inhibitor, apparently increases the production of thrombospondin, a natural angiogenesis inhibitor, said Dr.
