Intracellular trafficking of factor VIII to von Willebrand factor storage granules J. Clin. Invest. , 101 ( 1998 ) , pp. 613 - 624 CrossRef View Record in Scopus Google Scholar Intracellular Trafficking of Factor VIII to von Willebrand In plasma, von Willebrand factor (vWf) associates with Factor VIII (FVIII); however, the site at which these proteins first interact has not been defined. Administration of 1-desamino-8-D-arginine vasopressin (DDAVP) causes a rapid, concomitant elevation in plasma levels of both vWf and FVIII, suggesting the existence of a DDAVP-releasable storage pool for both proteins. Intracellular cotrafficking of factor VIII and von Weibel-Palade bodies (WPBs) are the endothelial storage organelles that are formed upon von Willebrand factor (VWF) eion. Apart from VWF, WPBs contain a variety of hemostatic and inflammatory proteins. Some of these are thought to be targeted to WPBs by directly interacting with VWF in the secretory pathway. Previous studies have demonstrated that coeion of factor VIII (FVIII)

Intracellular cotrafficking of factor VIII and von

von Willebrand Factor (VWF) is a large, multimeric adhesive glycoprotein that is involved in the formation of a platelet plug after vascular injury. 1 In addition, VWF functions as a molecular chaperone for factor VIII (FVIII) in the circulation, preventing its proteolytic degradation and premature clearance. 2 Mutations and deletions in the gene encoding VWF are associated with an autosomally inherited Intracellular trafficking of factor VIII to von Willebrand Nine patients (10 infusions) with a confirmed diagnosis of type 3 VWD were infused with von Willebrand factor (human), a preparation of von Willebrand factor (VWF) with a very low factor VIII content. Mutations in the D1 domain of von Willebrand factor secretions of von Willebrand factor. Our results support that the mutations in the D1 domain lead to defective multimerization, intracellular trafficking, and secretion of von Willebrand factor and result in bleeding of patients.

The biology of von Willebrand factor and factor VIII

The clinical association of factor VIII (FVIII) deficiency with both hemophilia A and von Willebrand disease (VWF) has been recognized for more than 50 years.1-3 However, the mechanism by which regulated secretion of both proteins occurs, remains controversial.1 Since FVIII is deficient in both hemophilia A and severe von Willebrand disease (VWD), it was not surprising to find that the reason von Willebrand factor storage and multimerization:2 von Willebrand factor storage and multimerization:2 independent intracellular processes. by S L Haberichter, S A Fahs, R R Montgomery.
