    Ac-TVASSSTA is an Octapeptide mimic of the N-terminal residues of the reactive center loop of PAI-1. The Octapeptide inactivates PAI-1 by substituting for strand 4 in beta-sheet A in a manner that competes with formation of the latent species. Insertion of the peptide into beta-sheet A effectively forms a stable complex that converts PAI-1 into a substrate for tissue-type plasminogen activator (tPA) and other target proteinases. The resulting species of PAI-1 is thermodynamically stable and is useful for investigating the role of reactive center loop insertion.

  • Function
    This inhibitor acts as 'bait' for tissue plasminogen activator, urokinase, and protein C. Its rapid interaction with TPA may function as a major control point in the regulation of fibrinolysis.
  • Tissue specificity
    Found in plasma and platelets and in endothelial, hepatoma and fibrosarcoma cells.
  • Involvement in disease
    Defects in SERPINE1 are the cause of plasminogen activator inhibitor-1 deficiency (PAI-1D) [MIM:613329]. It is a hematologic disorder characterized by increased bleeding after trauma, injury, or surgery. Affected females have menorrhagia. The bleeding defect is due to increased fibrinolysis of fibrin blood clots due to deficiency of plasminogen activator inhibitor-1, which inhibits tissue and urinary activators of plasminogen.
    Note=High concentrations of SERPINE1 seem to contribute to the development of venous but not arterial occlusions.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the serpin family.
  • Post-translational
    modifications
    Inactivated by proteolytic attack of the urokinase-type (u-PA) and the tissue-type (TPA), cleaving the 369-Arg-
    -Met-370 bond.
  • Cellular localization
    Secreted.
