Alterations in platelet alpha granule secretion and adhesion on collagen under flow in mice lacking the atypical Rho GTPase RhoBTB3 (2019)
Journal Article
Berger, M., Riley, D. R. J., Lutz, J., Khalil, J. S., Aburima, A., Naseem, K. M., & Rivero, F. (2019). Alterations in platelet alpha granule secretion and adhesion on collagen under flow in mice lacking the atypical Rho GTPase RhoBTB3. Cells, 8(2), 149. https://doi.org/10.3390/cells8020149

Typical Rho GTPases, like Rac1, Cdc42 and RhoA, act as molecular switches regulating various aspects of platelet cytoskeleton reorganization. The loss of these enzymes results in reduced platelet functionality. Atypical Rho GTPases of the RhoBTB su...

Thrombospondin-1 induces platelet activation through CD36-dependent inhibition of the cAMP/protein kinase A signaling cascade (2010)
Journal Article
Roberts, W., Magwenzi, S., Aburima, A., & Naseem, K. (2010). Thrombospondin-1 induces platelet activation through CD36-dependent inhibition of the cAMP/protein kinase A signaling cascade. Blood, 116(20), 4297-4306. doi:10.1182/blood-2010-01-265561

Cyclic adenosine monophosphate (cAMP)-dependent signaling modulates platelet function at sites of vascular injury. Here we show that thrombospondin-1 (TSP-1) prevents cAMP/protein kinase A (PKA) signaling through a CD36-dependent mechanism. Prostagla...
