New in @ATSBlueEditor, the culmination of over 4 years of work in the @bradleymaron lab, in which we identify that #NEDD9 is a hypoxia-regulated pulmonary endothelial protein that directly binds activated platelets to promote pulmonary thrombosis.

The @bradleymaron lab previously discovered that the malignancy protein #NEDD9 promotes endothelial fibrosis by regulating collagen synthesis in human pulmonary artery endothelial cells (HPAECs), which could be targeted to inhibit #PAH in vivo.

As a pro-metastatic protein, #NEDD9 interacts with pro-thrombotic cell types, & it was shown to be ⬆️ via #HIF1α in cancer cells to promote migration. We hypothesized that #NEDD9 is ⬆️ by hypoxia in HPAECs ➡️ pathogenic platelet-EC adhesion.
