Reversal of stress fibre formation by Nitric Oxide mediated RhoA inhibition leads to reduction in the height of preformed thrombi (2018)
Journal Article
Atkinson, L., Yusuf, M. Z., Aburima, A., Ahmed, Y., Thomas, S. G., Naseem, K. M., & Calaminus, S. D. J. (2018). Reversal of stress fibre formation by Nitric Oxide mediated RhoA inhibition leads to reduction in the height of preformed thrombi. Scientific reports, 8(1), https://doi.org/10.1038/s41598-018-21167-6

© 2018 The Author(s). Evidence has emerged to suggest that thrombi are dynamic structures with distinct areas of differing platelet activation and inhibition. We hypothesised that Nitric oxide (NO), a platelet inhibitor, can modulate the actin cytosk...

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.
