Our aim was to determine whether the newly described P2X1 antagonist NF449 [4,4',4'',4'''-(carbonylbis(imino-5,1,3-benzenetriylbis(carbonylimino)))tetrakis-benzene-1,3-disulfonic acid octasodium salt] could selectively antagonize the platelet P2X1 receptor and how it affected platelet function. NF449 inhibited alpha,beta-methyleneadenosine 5'-triphosphate-induced shape change (IC50 = 83 +/- 13...

Polymers formed by the self-assembly of a bis(urea)-based polymer, 2,4-bis(2-ethylhexylureido)toluene (EHUT), in organic solvents such as octane are promising systems with remarkable rheological properties. This is the first self-assembled polymer recently reported as a hydrodynamic drag reducer for hydrocarbons. The...
