DESCRIPTION
Also known as VM2EA_ECHCS. Potent inhibitor of ligand binding to the integrins alpha-V/beta-3 (ITGAV/ITGB3), alpha-5/beta-1 (ITGA5/ITGB1) and alpha-IIb/beta-3 (ITGA2B/ITGB3). Competition with fibrinogen for the RGD recognition sites on the alpha-IIb/beta-3 integrin (glyco-protein IIb/IIIa complex) results in the inhibition of platelet aggregation and other antithrombotic properties such as an ability to prevent coronary thrombosis in animal models. Is also a potent inhibitor of bone resorption. This results from the blocking of the interaction of alpha-V/beta-3 integrin on the surface of osteoclasts with bone extracellular matrix. In addition, interaction with alpha-V/beta-3 also inhibits adhesion of human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVEC) to immobilized vitronectin and fibronectin. Monomer.
