This study aimed at testing the hypothesis that the binding sites for TXA2/PGH2 are present and different in the heart as compared to platelets and blood vessels. Kinetic studies on the thromboxane binding to protein of membrane preparations from rabbit and pig hearts were carried out using [125I]-PTA-OH, a potent specific thromboxane receptor antagonist.(More)
Experiments were carried out on non-working isolated rabbit hearts perfused by Tyrode solution: the effects of Taurine introduced into the coronary circulation were studied on the biosynthesis of the anti-thromboxane synthetase factor ("FATS") and on the TXA2 and PGI2 synthetase activities of cardiac tissue. The effects of Taurine were simultaneously(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the factors associated with HIV1 RNA plasma viral load (pVL) below 40 copies/mL at the third trimester of pregnancy, as part of prevention of mother-to-child transmission (PMTCT) in Benin. DESIGN Sub study of the PACOME clinical trial of malaria prophylaxis in HIV-infected pregnant women, conducted before and after the(More)
The aim of the study was to determine the prostacyclin (PGI2) and thromboxane A2 (TXA2) synthetase activities of myocardial tissue and their variation during ischemia and reperfusion. Regional ischemia was induced by 10 min occlusion of the left anterior descending coronary artery in isolated Langendorff rabbit hearts. Biosynthesis of PGI2 and TXA2 were(More)
Prostaglandin E2 synthetase activity of the microsomal fraction from different parts of dog and rabbit heart was tested with 3H-arachidonic acid as substrate. PG E2 synthesized was separated and purified by TLC and determined by the radiometric method or by bioassay. In the experimental conditions adopted, it was shown that the heart tissue is endowed with(More)
The effects of 3-dimethylamino 5-(3' trifluoromethylbenzylidene) 6-methyl (4H)-pyridazine (PC88) on the biosynthesis of PGI2, using horse aorta microsomes as a source of enzyme and arachidonic acid as a substrate, were investigated. Under the experimental conditions adopted, PC88 was shown to dose-dependently inhibit PGI2 biosynthesis (ID50 = 6.9 x 10(-4) M(More)
A novel series of (6-aryl-4-oxo-pyrazolo 2,3-d] [1,2,5] triazin-3-yl) alkanoic acids was synthesized and evaluated in vitro as thromboxane A2 (TXA2) biosynthesis inhibitors. The experiments were carried out using arachidonic acid (32.8 microM) as a substrate and horse platelet microsomes (HPM) as sources of TXA synthetase. TXB2, a stable breakdown product(More)
