Competitive inhibition by adenosine 5'-triphosphate of the actions on human platelets of 2-chloroadenosine 5'-diphosphate, 2-azidoadenosine 5'-diphosphate and 2-methylthioadenosine 5'-diphosphate.


1 Adenosine 5'-diphosphate (ADP) induces human platelet aggregation and noncompetitively inhibits stimulated human platelet adenylate cyclase; these two effects are mediated by the same ADP receptor, at which adenosine 5'-triphosphate (ATP) is a competitive antagonist. 2 Two ADP analogues, 2-azidoadenosine 5'-diphosphate (2-azido-ADP) and 2… (More)
