Genistein, a protein tyrosine kinase inhibitor, inhibits thromboxane A2-mediated human platelet responses.

An isoflavone compound, genistein, which is known as a protein tyrosine kinase inhibitor, concentration-dependently (0.1-30 micrograms/ml) suppressed human platelet aggregation, serotonin secretion, and protein tyrosine phosphorylation induced by collagen or stable thromboxane A2 analogs [U46619 and 9,11-epithio-11,12-methano-thromboxane A2 (STA2)].
