  1. Tissue factor expression by the endothelium: Coagulation or inflammation?
  2. Protease-Activated Receptor-2 Regulates the Innate Immune Response to Viral Infection in a Coxsackievirus B3-Induced Myocarditis.
  3. Viral myocarditis and coagulopathy: Increased tissue factor expression and plasma thrombogenicity.
  4. Tissue factor Deficiency Increases Alveolar Hemorrhage and Death in Influenza A Infected Mice.
  5. Procoagulant soluble tissue factor is released from endothelial cells in response to inflammatory cytokines.
  6. Cdc2-Like Kinases and DNA Topoisomerase I Regulate Alternative Splicing of Tissue Factor in Human Endothelial Cells.
  7. Alternatively Spliced Tissue Factor and Full-length Tissue Factor Protect Cardiomyocytes against TNF-α-induced Apoptosis.
  8. Evaluation of a New Commercial Assay to Measure Microparticle Tissue Factor Activity in Plasma: communication from the SSC of the ISTH.
  9. Reduced thrombosis in Klkb1-/- mice is mediated by increased Mas receptor, prostacyclin, Sirt1 and KLF4 and decreased tissue factor.
  10. Platelet Inhibitors Reduce Rupture in a Mouse Model of Established Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm.
