Different Flow Conditions Modulate Anti-Thrombotic Effects and Mechanisms of Xueshuantong Capsule

Anti-thrombosis Effects and Mechanisms by Xueshuantong Capsule Under Different Flow Conditions

Xueshuantong capsule (XST) is a patented traditional Chinese medicine used for the prevention and treatment of thrombosis. The molecular mechanism of the anti-thrombotic effect of XST was investigated through the crosstalk among the platelets/leukocytes, endothelial cells (ECs), and flow shear stress. The BioFlux 1000z system was employed to generate two levels of shear stress conditions: 0.1 and 0.9 Pa. BioFlux Montage cell analysis software was used to analyze the adhesion cell numbers. Effects of XST on inhibiting platelet activation and suppressing platelets/leukocytes adhesion to injured ECs are not only concentration-dependent, but also shear stress dependent. Furthermore, we wonder whether effects of XST on shear-induced platelet aggregation are associated with Piezo1 protein, the potential mechanotransduction-module. The BioFlux 1000z system and high shear 48-well plates are utilized, and the microfluidic channels are coated with vWF.
