Soluble elastin, prepared from insoluble elastin by treatment with oxalic acid or elastase, was found to inhibit the formation of thromboxane B2 both from [1-14C]arachidonic acid added to washed platelets and from [1-14C]arachidonic acid in prelabeled platelets on stimulation with thrombin. In both systems, the formation of 12-hydroxy-5,8,10,14… CONTINUE READING
