Platelet Purinergic Receptors- Far from Home
AbstractPurinergic receptors are the ones that use nucleotides as their agonists
or antagonists. They have crucial role in platelets. Their physiological
role as well as pharmacological target for antiplatelet drugs are well
established and they have immense applications in clinical practice. But
today the same purinergic receptors over platelets were identified
elsewhere and they have been implicated in various health conditions.
So, this review focuses to explain the non-thrombotic uses of platelet
