    TSP1 replacement does not suppress the rise in KLF2 and KLF4 after loss of KRIT1. (A and B) Analysis of TSP1, ZO-1, KLF2, and KLF4 mRNA levels by RT-qPCR in freshly isolated microvasculature from mice at P5 and P7 as indicated. Krit1 fl/fl littermate controls, at each developmental stage, were used to calculate percentage increase or decrease in Krit1 ECKO mice using the following formulas: % increase = 100 × ( X − F )/ F and % decrease = 100 × ABS[( F − X )/ F ], where X and F = mRNA abundance in Krit1 ECKO and Krit1 fl/fl BMECs, respectively (SEM, n = 4 or 6). (C) Representative confocal images of retinal vasculature stained for KLF4 (green), TSP1 (red), or isolectin B4 (turquoise). TSP1 is decreased and KLF4 is increased at areas of condensed vasculature ( n = 5 or 6 mice in each group). Bar, 25 µm. (D and E) Analysis of levels of KLF2 and KLF4 mRNA by RT-qPCR from Krit1 ECKO BMEC (D) or cerebellar tissue from Krit1 ECKO mice (E) treated with 3TSR, TSP1, or vehicle compared with Krit1 fl/fl BMEC or Krit1 fl/fl controls. Data are expressed as percentage increase or decrease in Krit1 ECKO using the same formulas as in A and B (SEM, n = 3 or 4 in each group). (F) HUVECs were transduced with lentivirus encoding shKrit1, KLF2, or KLF4, and the increase in KLF2 or KLF4 mRNA relative to cells transduced with lentivirus encoding GFP was measured by RT-qPCR (SEM, n = 4). (G) HUVECs were transduced with lentivirus encoding ShKrit1, KLF2, or KLF4 as described in F, and the decrease of TSP1 mRNA levels was measured relative to cells transduced with EGFP control lentivirus (SEM, n = 4 or 5). (H) Analysis of TSP1 protein levels in HUVECs transduced with lentivirus encoding KLF2 or KLF4 as assessed by Western blot analysis; lentivirus encoding GFP was used as a control (SEM, n = 4). White lines indicate intervening lanes have been spliced out. (I) Loss of endothelial KRIT1 increases expression of KLF2 and KLF4 transcription factors, contributing to CCM formation by downstream effects including suppressed TSP1 expression. 3TSR (TSP1 derivative) reduces CCM lesion formation by replacing functions of TSP1 such as blocking VEGF signaling. Loss of KRIT1 also leads to ROCK activation in a KLF2-dependent manner, and blocking ROCK can also ameliorate CCMs. Thus, blockade of these and other downstream targets of KLF2 and KLF4 may offer a general strategy to reduce CCM formation in humans. *, P

After 30 min, the mouse was killed, and its cerebellar cortex was stained for 3TSR (red, using anti-TSP1 antibodies) and endothelial marker PECAM1 (green); DAPI staining (blue) was used to reveal nuclei. 3TSR is observed in CCM.

    Altered tight junctions are an early phenotypic consequence of Krit1 inactivation. (A) Representative confocal images of ZO-1 (red), claudin5 (CLDN5; turquoise), and VE-cadherin (green) staining in primary BMEC Krit1 ECKO or control Krit1 fl/fl BMECs. Nuclei were counterstained with DAPI (blue; n = 4). Arrows indicate loss of tight junctions but not adherence junctions. (B) Quantification of brain endothelial ZO-1, claudin5, and VE-cadherin protein as assessed by Western blot analysis in Krit1 ECKO compared with Krit1 fl/fl BMEC controls (SEM, n = 3 or 4). (C) Confocal microscopy of cerebellar cortex at P7 stained with anti-PECAM1 (green). (D) Higher-magnification images of boxed areas in C stained for ZO-1 (red), claudin5 (turquoise), and PECAM1 (green). Arrows, staining of tight junction proteins ZO-1 and claudin5; asterisks, vascular lumen of CCM ( n = 3). (E) Quantification of brain endothelial ZO-1, claudin5, and VE-cadherin protein abundance in freshly isolated cerebellar microvasculature in Krit1 ECKO compared with Krit1 fl/fl littermate controls (SEM, n = 3 or 4). (F) Maximum-intensity projection of whole-mount P7 retinal vasculature at the angiogenic growth front stained for ZO-1 (red), claudin5 (turquoise), and an endothelial marker, isolectin B4 (green). (G) Higher-magnification images of boxed areas in F show staining for ZO-1 (red), claudin5 (turquoise), and isolectin B4 (green). (H) Quantification of ZO-1 and claudin5 protein expression in retinal vasculature at the angiogenic front in Krit1 ECKO compared with Krit1 fl/fl littermate controls (SEM, n = 6 mice per group).

    Loss of KRIT1 inhibits the expression of TSP1. (A) Genome-wide RNA-seq from three independent biological replicates followed by gene ontology analysis of genes differentially expressed in Krit1 ECKO BMECs compared with Krit1 fl/fl BMECs. Each term listed was the top term in a cluster of related terms, and the corrected p-values were calculated according to Benjamini’s method ( Huang et al., 2009 ). (B) Expression levels of differentially expressed genes represented on a scatter plot; fragments per kilobase of transcript per million mapped reads (FPKM) of individual transcripts are represented on a log2 scale. A few of the most highly suppressed and up-regulated genes are labeled. (C) RT-qPCR confirmation of RNA-seq–identified marked decrease in mRNA of extracellular regulators of angiogenesis in Krit1 ECKO BMECs compared with Krit1 fl/fl BMECs (SEM, n = 3). (D) Quantification of TSP1 protein from three independent biological replicates in Krit1 ECKO (KO) and in Krit1 fl/fl (Flox) BMECs (SEM, n = 3).
