Mechanisms involved in the antiplatelet effect of C-phycocyanin
British Journal of Nutrition
C-phycocyanin (cpc), a biliprotein isolated from Spirulina platensis, has been reported to exert many therapeutic and nutritional values. In the present study, we examined whether cpc has an antiplatelet activity in vitro and further investigated the possible anti-aggregatory mechanisms involved. Our results showed that preincubation of cpc (1 -50 mg/ml) with rabbit washed platelets dose-dependently inhibited the platelet aggregation induced by collagen (10 mg/ml) or arachidonic acid (100 mM),doi:10.1079/bjn20051643 pmid:16469164 fatcat:uypgh52jwfbpdfyuar2mz7s7d4
