Biological Activity for Laropiprant

Laropiprant is a potent and selective prostaglandin D2 receptor antagonist (IC50 = 0.09 nM in washed platelets; Ki = 0.57). It exhibits selectivity for binding to PGD2 receptors over other prostanoid receptors (Ki values are ≥ 2.95 nM for TP, EP1, EP2, EP3, EP4, FP and IP). Laropiprant promotes coagulation of whole blood ex vivo and reduces bleeding time in mice in vivo. In a mouse model of intracerebral hemorrhage, Laropiprant reduces lesion volume and attenuates neurological deficit scores. The compound also reduces Niacin (Cat. No. 4106) induced vasodilation.

Pain Poster

Pain Poster

Peripheral sensitization is the reduction in the threshold of excitability of sensory neurons that results in an augmented response to a given external stimulus. This poster outlines the excitatory and inhibitory signaling pathways involved in modulation of peripheral sensitization. The role of ion channels, GPCRs, neurotrophins, and cytokines in sensory neurons are also described.
