Basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF) and its specific receptors have diverse roles on a variety of cell types, such as the induction of vascular smooth-muscle cell proliferation which contributes to restenosis after coronary balloon angioplasty. bFGF is also known to interact with heparan sulphate proteoglycans present on the cell surface or in the(More)
RGS18 is a myeloerythroid lineage-specific regulator of G-protein signaling, highly expressed in megakaryocytes (MKs) and platelets. In the present study, we describe the first generation of a RGS18 knockout mouse model (RGS18-/-). Interesting phenotypic differences between RGS18-/- and wild-type (WT) mice were identified, and show that RGS18 plays a(More)
The tritiated bradykinin B1 receptor agonist [3H]des-Arg(10)-kallidin bound to a single class of high-affinity binding sites (K(d) = 0.5 +/- 0.16 nM; B(max) = 15,000 +/- 8,000 sites/cell) on cultured rat aortic smooth muscle cells. [3H]Des-Arg(10)-kallidin association and dissociation kinetics were monoexponential, making it possible to determine the(More)
ADP acts as an agonist of platelet aggregation via specific receptors which are still to be characterised. Amplification by PCR of a human platelet cDNA library confirmed the presence of mRNA of the P2Y1 receptor in platelets. In order to determine if these P2Y1 receptors were involved in ADP-induced platelet activation, we determined the effects of A3P5PS,(More)
SR 27417, the first member of a newly developed series of platelet activating factor (PAF) antagonists inhibited in a dose-dependent manner PAF-induced oedema formation in rabbit skin when administered i.d. premixed with PAF (ED50 = 3.3 +/- 0.15 pmol/site i.d. (intradermally) (n = 5). The effect of SR 27417 was over 660 times more potent than that of the(More)
This study aimed to determine the binding characteristics of [3H]alpha,beta-Me-ATP, a specific ligand of the P2x1 receptors to rat platelets, and to investigate the effect of clopidogrel, a thienopyridine compound which has been found to selectively inhibit ADP-induced platelet aggregation and adenylyl cyclase ex vivo. Binding of [3H]alpha,beta-Me-ATP to(More)
SR 27417, the first member of a newly-developed PAF antagonist series, inhibited in a dose-dependent manner the hypotensive effect of PAF in rats. It protected rats with an ED50 = 6 micrograms/kg, when given i.v., 1 min before PAF or p.o. (ED50 = 170 micrograms/kg) 1 h before PAF administration. After i.v. or oral administration, SR 27417 (1 and 3 mg/kg,(More)
P2Y12 antagonism is a key therapeutic strategy in the management and prevention of arterial thrombosis. The objective of this study was to characterize the pharmacodynamic (PD) and pharmacokinetic (PK) properties of SAR216471, a novel P2Y12 receptor antagonist. SAR216471 blocks the binding of 2MeSADP to P2Y12 receptors in vitro (IC50=17 nM). This inhibition(More)
