Cultured human endothelial cells were labeled with (3H)leucine, and the radioactive Factor VIII antigen present in the postculture medium was isolated by double anitbody immunoprecipitation and characterized by sodium dodecyl sulfate-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis after reduction with dithiothreitol. The Factor VIII antigen synthesized by cultured endothelial cells was found to contain the same single polypeptide subunit (mol wt 225,000) present in plasma Factor VIII antigen. These results suggest that in vivo, the endothelial cell is a major site of synthesis of circulating Factor VIII antigen.

Usage data is cumulative from September 2021 through September 2022.
Usage information is collected from two different sources: this site (JCI) and Pubmed Central (PMC). JCI information (compiled daily) shows human readership based on methods we employ to screen out robotic usage. PMC information (aggregated monthly) is also similarly screened of robotic usage.
Various methods are used to distinguish robotic usage. For example, Google automatically scans articles to add to its search index and identifies itself as robotic; other services might not clearly identify themselves as robotic, or they are new or unknown as robotic. Because this activity can be misinterpreted as human readership, data may be re-processed periodically to reflect an improved understanding of robotic activity. Because of these factors, readers should consider usage information illustrative but subject to change.
