- Fusion proteins comprising annexin V and Kunitz protease inhibitors are highly potent thrombogenic site-directed anticoagulantsHsiu Hui Chen
Division of Hematology, Department of Medicine, Washington University School of Medicine, St Louis, MO, USA
Blood 105:3902-9. 2005..ANV-KPI fusion proteins represent a new class of anticoagulants that specifically target the anionic membrane-associated coagulation enzyme complexes present at sites of thrombogenesis and are potentially useful as antithrombotic agents...

Glycobiology 16:693-701. 2006..These data support the hypothesis that modification of IdoA-->GalNAc4SO3 subunits in the DS polymer by either 2-O-sulfation of IdoA or 6-O-sulfation of GalNAc can generate molecules with HCII-binding sites and anticoagulant activity...
- Inhibition of antithrombin by Plasmodium falciparum histidine-rich protein IIMatthew Ndonwi

Blood 117:6347-54. 2011....
- Placental dermatan sulfate: isolation, anticoagulant activity, and association with heparin cofactor IITusar K Giri
Hematology Division, Campus Box 8125, Washington University Medical School, 660 South Euclid Ave, St Louis, MO 63110, USA
Blood 107:2753-8. 2006..Our data suggest that DS is in a position to activate HCII in the fetal blood vessels or in the stroma of placental villi after injury to the syncytiotrophoblast layer and thereby inhibit fibrin generation in the placenta...
- The collection of NFATc1-dependent transcripts in the osteoclast includes numerous genes non-essential to physiologic bone resorptionJulia F Charles
Department of Medicine, Division of Rheumatology, Allergy and Immunology, Brigham and Women s Hospital and Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA 02115, USA
Bone 51:902-12. 2012..These data highlight the need for rigorous validation studies to complement expression profiling results before functional importance can be assigned to highly regulated genes in any biologic process...
- A self-inactivating gamma-retroviral vector reduces manifestations of mucopolysaccharidosis I in miceJason A Metcalf

- Heparin cofactor II inhibits arterial thrombosis after endothelial injuryLi He
Division of Hematology, Department of Internal Medicine, Washington University, St Louis, Missouri 63110, USA
J Clin Invest 109:213-9. 2002..This abnormality was corrected by infusion of purified HCII but not ovalbumin. These observations suggest that HCII might inhibit thrombosis in the arterial circulation...
- Accelerated atherogenesis and neointima formation in heparin cofactor II deficient miceCristina P Vicente
Department of Cellular Biology, Institute of Biology, State University of Campinas UNICAMP, Campinas Sao Paulo, Brazil
Blood 110:4261-7. 2007..Heparin did not inhibit neointima formation. We conclude that HCII deficiency promotes atherogenesis and neointima formation and that treatment with dermatan sulfate reduces neointima formation in an HCII-dependent manner...
