We established seven hybridomas secreting monoclonal antibodies (MoAbs) against the venom from Bothrops jararaca. Six of them were demonstrated to specifically recognize botrocetin, a venom protein which binds with von Willebrand factor (vWf) and induces platelet agglutination. Two of them, BCT4-3 and BCT115-2 MoAbs, could significantly inhibit botrocetin binding with plasma vWf. BCT4-3 could react slightly with a monolayer of human endothelial cells (ECs), and BCT4-3 binding to ECs was drastically enhanced by the coexistence of human plasma in a dose-dependent manner, indicating that a biological modulator structurally resembling botrocetin is created initially on the EC surface complexed with some plasma proteins. Botrocetin-like components could be immuno purified only by immobilized BCT4-3, but not by the other immobilized MoAbs, from umbilical vein extracts. Interestingly, the immunoisolated materials were identified to consist essentially of fibronectin (Fn) and a 130 kDa molecule, and this complex bound to vWf in the extracts. Depletion of Fn from plasma decreased BCT4-3 binding to ECs. The epitope of BCT4-3 expressed on the endothelial surface, comprising plasma Fn and the coisolated 130 kDa molecule, is proposed to be a physiological modulator structurally mimicking botrocetin, and essentially supporting vWf-binding to injured endothelium and subsequently to circulating platelets.
