The role of ATP-stimulated P2X1 receptors in human platelets is still unclear. They may act alone or in synergy with other pathways, such as P2Y1 or P2Y12 receptors, to accelerate and enhance calcium mobilisation, shape change and aggregation. To date very few pharmacological means of selectively inhibiting platelet P2X1 receptors have been described, although recent work has shown that suramin is a useful lead compound for the development of high-affinity P2X1 antagonists. We therefore… CONTINUE READING
