Abstract/OtherAbstract:
VWF is required for platelet adhesion to sites of vessel injury, a process vital for both hemostasis and thrombosis. Enhanced VWF secretion and oxidative stress are both hallmarks of inflammation. We recently showed that the neutrophil oxidant hypochlorous acid (HOCl) inhibits VWF proteolysis by ADAMTS13 by oxidizing VWF methionine 1606 (M1606) in the A2 domain. M1606 was readily oxidized in a substrate peptide, but required urea in multimeric plasma VWF. In the present study, we examined whether shear stress enhances VWF oxidation. With an HOCl-generating system containing myeloperoxidase (MPO) and H(2)O(2), we found that shear stress accelerated M1606 oxidation, with 56% becoming oxidized within 1 hour. Seven other methionine residues in the VWF A1A2A3 region (containing the sites for platelet and collagen binding and ADAMTS13 cleavage) were variably oxidized, one completely. Oxidized methionines accumulated preferentially in the largest VWF multimers. HOCl-oxidized VWF was hyperfunctional, agglutinating platelets at ristocetin concentrations that induced minimal agglutination using unoxidized VWF and binding more of the nanobody AU/VWFa-11, which detects a gain-of-function conformation of the A1 domain. These findings suggest that neutrophil oxidants will both render newly secreted VWF uncleavable and alter the largest plasma VWF forms such that they become hyperfunctional and resistant to proteolysis by ADAMTS13.
