The phytochemical resveratrol (3,4',5-trihydroxystilbene), which is found in grapes and wine, has been reported to have a variety of anti-inflammatory, anti-platelet and anti-carcinogenic effects. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the effects of trans-resveratrol on adhesion of blood platelets to collagen, as well as on thrombininduced platelet(More)
Resveratrol (3,4',5-trihydroxystilbene), a compound found in many plants, has been shown to prevent coronary heart diseases and to exert a variety of antiinflammatory and anticancerogenic effects. It is effective in lowering the level of serum lipids and in inhibiting platelet aggregation. We evaluated the effect of trans-resveratrol on the production of(More)
The preparation and properties of ceruloplasmin from goose blood plasma are described. Ammonium sulfate was used to precipitate the crude protein followed by adsorption and elution from DEAE-Sephadex A-50. Further treatment with an ethanol-chloroform mixture and Sephadex G-200 yielded an intensely blue protein possessing a high degree of chemical purity and(More)
The effect of aggregating agents on the amounts and nature of released proteins from washed goose and chicken thrombocytes was studied. The released protein material was separated on Sepharose 4B. Protein fractions with low molecular weight were next chromatographed on Sephadex G-200. The released proteins from thrombin aggregated pig platelets were(More)
The action of inorganic forms of selenium (Se) on blood platelet aggregation, secretion and the arachidonate pathway in vitro was studied. It was shown that sodium selenite, after 30 min preincubation, inhibited platelet aggregation induced by 0.1 U/ml of thrombin and by 10 microM ADP (about 30% inhibition of aggregation after pretreatment of platelets with(More)
It was demonstrated that incubation of blood platelets with sodium selenite (1-100 microM) resulted in a dose- and time-dependent loss of platelet thiols (both glutathione and protein -SH groups). The effects of sodium selenite on platelet membrane lipid fluidity by the EPR spin-labelling method was also investigated. We showed there were no alterations in(More)
