Platelet function following induced hypoglycaemia in type 2 diabetes (2018)
Journal Article
Kahal, H., Aburima, A., Spurgeon, B., Wraith, K. S., Rigby, A. S., Sathyapalan, T., …Atkin, S. L. (2018). Platelet function following induced hypoglycaemia in type 2 diabetes. Diabetes & metabolism, 44(5), 431-436. doi:10.1016/j.diabet.2018.04.004

Aim Strict glycaemic control has been associated with an increased mortality rate in subjects with type 2 diabetes (T2DM). Here we examined platelet function immediately and 24 hours following induced hypoglycaemia in people with type 2 diabetes comp... Read More

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. doi: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

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), doi: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

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. ISSN 0006-4971

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... Read More

Globular adiponectin increases cGMP formation in blood platelets independently of nitric oxide (2008)
Journal Article
Riba, R., Patel, B., Aburima, A., & Naseem, K. M. (2008). Globular adiponectin increases cGMP formation in blood platelets independently of nitric oxide. Journal of thrombosis and haemostasis : JTH, 6(12), (2121-2131). doi:10.1111/j.1538-7836.2008.03179.x. ISSN 1538-7933

Background: Platelet-derived nitric oxide (NO) has been shown to play conflicting roles in platelet function, although it is accepted that NO mediates its actions through soluble guanylyl cyclase (sGC). This confusion concerning the roles of platelet... Read More
