The best association was reported for antibodies detected by the PS-PT assay, suggesting that the pathogenic antibodies may react with a conformational epitope(s) expressed by PT when complexed with anionic PL in the presence of calcium ions . 3 Why We Break the Tolerance Against Beta2GPI? The mechanism(s) through which the tolerance towards β2GPI is lost is still matter of research, and several hypotheses have been suggested. There is sound evidence that aPL can be detectable in the course of viral, bacterial, and parasitic infections as a transient phenomenon [7, 8].
Platelet activation by aPL has been supported by ex vivo studies since elevated levels of thromboxane (TX, the major eicosanoid metabolic breakdown product) have been found in the urine of APS patients . 2 Involvement of Monocytes aPL upregulate TF expression on peripheral blood monocytes. In particular, monocyte TF expression is increased in patients with APS and correlates with the expression of β2GPI. Accordingly, cell-surface TF on monocytes is higher in APS patients than in subjects without thrombotic events.
