PGH2 (TXA2) analog that is a potent and stable thromboxane A2 (TP) receptor agonist (EC50 = 0.035 μM). Potently stimulates TP receptor-mediated, but not other prostaglandin receptor-mediated responses in various in vitro preparations. Activates ERK-1 and ERK-2 in HEK 293 cells expressing TPα and TPβ receptors.

Preparing Stock Solutions
The following data is based on the product molecular weight 350.5. Batch specific molecular weights may vary from batch to batch due to solvent of hydration, which will affect the solvent volumes required to prepare stock solutions.
|Concentration / Solvent Volume / Mass||1 mg||5 mg||10 mg|
|1 mM||2.85 mL||14.27 mL||28.53 mL|
|5 mM||0.57 mL||2.85 mL||5.71 mL|
|10 mM||0.29 mL||1.43 mL||2.85 mL|
|50 mM||0.06 mL||0.29 mL||0.57 mL|

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.
