A platelet activating factor from earthworm, Eisenia foelide (EPAF, 25.9 mumol.L-1), induced human platelet aggregation and 5-HT (maximal release of 89% at EPAF 74.1 mumol.L-1) was detected during this process. Neither creatine phosphate/creatine phosphate kinase (CP/CPK) nor aspirin completely inhibited the EPAF-induced platelet aggregation. In the… CONTINUE READING
