General information

  • TXA2 retards the clearance of aggregated protein in nephritic glomeruli and contributes to the pathophysiology of glomerulonephritis. [1]
  • TXA2 contributes to renal injuries in OLETF(Otsuka Long-Evans Tokushima Fatty ) rats through mechanisms other than hemodynamic injury. [2]
  • Stimulator of platelet aggregation.
  • THA2 contributes to the increased noradrenaline response in mesenteric microvessels perfused in vitro. [3]
  • TXA2 mediates lipopolysaccharide induced rise in pulmonary arterial pressure. [4]
  • TXA2 is the predominant eicosanoid present in all life stages of Trypanosoma cruzi, and Chagas' disease is caused by infection with the parasite T.cruzi. [5]
  • TXA2 exerts a weak inhibitory effect on ulcer healing in rats. [6]
  • TXA2 plays a role in overproduction of lactate during endotoxaemia in NO-deficient rats. [7]
  • TXA2 is a potent constrictor of airway smooth muscle, an inducer of acetylcholine release and of airway microvascular leakage. [8]
  • TXA2 plays an important role in microcirculation disorders in the rat inner ear. [9]
  • TXA2 releases into the portal circulation,contributes to the increased portal resistance in bile duct ligation-induced liver injury. [10]
  • TXA2 plays a significant role in mechanical hyperalgesia induced by autologous nucleus pulposus. [11]
  • TXA2 contributes to the pulmonary circulatory abnormalities in cirrhosis. [12]
  • TXA2 plays a role in the course of acute necrotizing pancreatitis. [13]
