Cat. No. 3497
Alternative Name: Thrombin receptor activator peptide 6
Biological ActivityPeptide fragment (residues 42-47) of protease-activated receptor 1 (PAR1) that acts as a PAR1 agonist. Stimulates platelet aggregation (EC50 = 0.8 μM), promotes intracellular Ca2+ mobilization and induces rapid phosphodiesterase 3A (PDE3A) phosphorylation in vitro.
