The erythrocyte is proposed to play a key role in the control of local tissue perfusion via three O(2)-dependent signaling mechanisms: 1) reduction of circulating nitrite to vasoactive NO, 2) S-nitrosohemoglobin (SNO-Hb)-dependent vasodilatation, and 3) release of the vasodilator and sympatholytic ATP; however, their relative roles in vivo remain unclear. ...

Alterations of blood rheology related to muscular activity have been extensively studied over the last 20 years. It has been shown that exercise exerts a "triphasic" action on the rheological properties of blood. In the short term, exercise induces a transient hyperviscosity, mostly due to a rise in hematocrit and ...

BACKGROUND: The activation marker CD40 ligand (CD40L) has recently been demonstrated to be released from the cytoplasm of platelets (PLTs) during storage. CD40L may be associated with some adverse transfusion reactions including febrile responses and transfusion-related acute lung injury. CD62P has been traditionally measured to assess PLT activation. This study ...

Activation of the NO/cGMP pathway modulates smooth muscle cells relaxation and hence vasoconstriction, a major hindrance for the use of cell-free haemoglobin (Hb) as blood substitute, despite conjugation with 5-kDa maleimide poly(ethylene)-glycol (PEG) reduces vasoconstriction in vivo. We aimed at assessing how a recently developed PEGylated-Hb (Deoxy-PEGHb) and manipulation of ...

At present, the relative severity of the bleeding in exercise-induced pulmonary hemorrhage (EIPH) is better evaluated using scoring methods based on tracheobronchoscopic assessment of bleeding or red blood cells (RBCs) count in broncho-alveolar lavage (BAL). However, misinterpretation might happen with tracheobronchoscopic examination when the hemorrhage is tiny as well as ...

Recent studies suggest that overexpression of the polyamine-acetylating enzyme spermidine/spermine N(1)-acetyltransferase (SSAT) significantly increases metabolic flux through the polyamine pathway. The concept derives from the observation that SSAT-induced acetylation of polyamines gives rise to a compensatory increase in biosynthesis and presumably to increased flow through the pathway. Despite the strength ...
