Members of the Src family of kinases are abundant in platelets. Although their localization is known, their role(s) in platelet function are not well understood. Lyn is a Src-family kinase that participates in signal transduction pathways elicited by collagen-related peptide; it has also been implicated through biochemical studies in the regulation of von(More)
Collagen-induced activation of platelets in suspension leads to alpha(IIb)beta(3)-mediated outside-in signaling, granule release, thromboxane A2 (TxA2) production, and aggregation. Although much is known about collagen-induced platelet signaling, the roles of TxA2 production, adenosine diphosphate (ADP) and dense-granule secretion, and(More)
The roles of ␣ IIb ␤ 3-mediated outside-in signal transduction, thromboxane A2, and adenosine diphosphate in collagen-induced platelet aggregation Collagen-induced activation of platelets in suspension leads to ␣ IIb ␤ 3-mediated outside-in signaling, granule release, thromboxane A2 (TxA2) production, and aggregation. Although much is known about(More)
PURPOSE To characterize the radiation-enhancing effects and underlying mechanisms of combined treatment with celecoxib, a cyclooxygenase-2 selective inhibitor, and gefitinib, an epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) tyrosine kinase inhibitor, in human lung cancer cells. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN Clonogenic cytotoxicity assays and clonogenic radiation survival(More)
The work presented here demonstrates that platelets from mice lacking LAT (linker for the activation of T cells) show reversible aggregation in response to concentrations of collagen that cause TxA2/ADP-dependent irreversible aggregation of control platelets. The aggregation defect of the LAT-deficient platelets was shown to be the result of almost no TxA2(More)
The peptide LSARLAF (LSA) causes alphaIIbbeta3-dependent platelet activation that results in alpha-granule secretion and aggregation. LSARLAF-induced, alphaIIbbeta3-mediated outside-in signaling causing alpha-granule secretion and platelet aggregation was studied using washed mouse platelets. ADP receptor antagonists, enzyme inhibitors, normal platelets and(More)
