Targeting of type I protein kinase A to lipid rafts is required for platelet inhibition by the 3′,5′-cyclic adenosine monophosphate-signaling pathway (2015)
Journal Article
Raslan, Z., Magwenzi, S., Aburima, A., Taskén, K., & Naseem, K. M. (2015). Targeting of type I protein kinase A to lipid rafts is required for platelet inhibition by the 3′,5′-cyclic adenosine monophosphate-signaling pathway. Journal of thrombosis and haemostasis : JTH, 13(9), 1721-1734. doi:10.1111/jth.13042

Background Platelet adhesion to von Willebrand factor (VWF) is modulated by 3′,5′-cyclic adenosine monophosphate (cAMP) signaling through protein kinase A (PKA)-mediated phosphorylation of glycoprotein (GP)Ibβ. A-kinase anchoring proteins (AKAPs) are...

Oxidized LDL activates blood platelets through CD36/NOX2–mediated inhibition of the cGMP/protein kinase G signaling cascade (2015)
Journal Article
Magwenzi, S., Woodward, C., Wraith, K. S., Aburima, A., Raslan, Z., Jones, H., …Naseem, K. M. (2015). Oxidized LDL activates blood platelets through CD36/NOX2–mediated inhibition of the cGMP/protein kinase G signaling cascade. Blood, 125(17), 2693-2703. doi:10.1182/blood-2014-05-574491

Oxidized low-density lipoprotein (oxLDL) promotes unregulated platelet activation in dyslipidemic disorders. Although oxLDL stimulates activatory signaling, it is unclear how these events drive accelerated thrombosis. Here, we describe a mechanism fo...
