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.

Globular adiponectin induces platelet activation through the collagen receptor GPVI-Fc receptor γ chain complex (2008)
Journal Article
Riba, R., Hughes, C. E., Graham, A., Watson, S. P., & Naseem, K. M. (2008). Globular adiponectin induces platelet activation through the collagen receptor GPVI-Fc receptor γ chain complex. Journal of thrombosis and haemostasis : JTH, 6(6), (1012-1020). doi:10.1111/j.1538-7836.2008.02982.x. ISSN 1538-7933

Background: The adipocyte-derived cytokine, adiponectin (Ad), exerts potent vascular effects, although the direct effects of Ad on blood platelets are unclear. Objective: The influence of globular Ad (gAd) on blood platelet function was inv...
