PTA2 is a stable analog of TXA2. It is a TP receptor antagonist and an inhibitor of thromboxane synthase.1,2 PTA2 inhibits U-46619-induced cat coronary artery constriction (ID50 = 0.1 µM), U-46619-induced aggregation of human platelets (IC50 = 2 µM), and rabbit platelet thromboxane synthase (ID50 = 50 µM). PTA2 does not affect PGI synthase up to a concentration of 100 µM.1

Cayman Chemical was formed over thirty years ago by demonstrating the value of naturally growing gorgonian corals as a renewable, economically viable source of prostaglandins. Today we operate our business knowing that we owe our start to the renewable resources our environment had provided. As Cayman Chemical continues to grow we consistently evaluate our business processes to ensure we are operating at the highest environmental standards.
