Hexanolamino PAF C-16 is a PAF analog with mixed agonist/antagonist properties. In human monocyte-derived macrophages, it is an antagonist which inhibits the production of reactive oxygen species in response to PAF C-16.1 On the other hand, in rabbit platelets and guinea pig macrophages, hexanolamino PAF C-16 is a partial agonist, and in guinea pig platelets it is a full agonist.2
