cGMP signaling inhibits platelet shape change through regulation of the RhoA-Rho Kinase-MLC phosphatase signaling pathway (2017)
Journal Article
Aburima, A., Walladbegi, K., Wake, J. D., & Naseem, K. M. (2017). cGMP signaling inhibits platelet shape change through regulation of the RhoA-Rho Kinase-MLC phosphatase signaling pathway. Journal of thrombosis and haemostasis : JTH, 15(8), 1668-1678. https://doi.org/10.1111/jth.13738

Essentials Platelet shape change requires cytoskeletal rearrangement via myosin‐mediated actin contraction. We investigated whether nitric oxide (NO) affected thrombin‐induced platelet shape change. NO inhibits shape change, RhoA/ROCK signalling a... Read More about cGMP signaling inhibits platelet shape change through regulation of the RhoA-Rho Kinase-MLC phosphatase signaling pathway.

Prostacyclin reverses platelet stress fibre formation causing platelet aggregate instability (2017)
Journal Article
Yusuf, M. Z., Raslan, Z., Atkinson, L., Aburima, A., Thomas, S. G., Naseem, K. M., & Calaminus, S. D. (2017). Prostacyclin reverses platelet stress fibre formation causing platelet aggregate instability. Scientific reports, 7(1), https://doi.org/10.1038/s41598-017-05817-9

Prostacyclin (PGI2) modulates platelet activation to regulate haemostasis. Evidence has emerged to suggest that thrombi are dynamic structures with distinct areas of differing platelet activation. It was hypothesised that PGI2 could reverse platelet... Read More about Prostacyclin reverses platelet stress fibre formation causing platelet aggregate instability.
