It has been thought that blood vessels apart from the umbilical artery produce little or no thromboxane (TX) A2. However selective inhibitors of TXA2 biosynthesis have substantial effects on vessel physiology, suggesting that small amounts of TXA2 may be important in regulating function. This indirect evidence is now supported by direct measurements of TXB2 (the produce of TXA2 conversion) using both gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GCMS) and radioimmunoassays. At least four independent… CONTINUE READING
