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...

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

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 about Globular adiponectin increases cGMP formation in blood platelets independently of nitric oxide.
