Application

Trapidil was used to study the mechanism of osteoclastogenesis and bone loss in mice.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Trapidil is an antiplatelet agent that acts in part as a phosphodiesterase inhibitor and as a competitive inhibitor of the platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF) receptor. Trapidil, with its vasodilator and NO releasing effect may have some potential to diminish the tissue injury. Trapidil suppresses platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF)-induced vascular smooth muscle cell (VSMC) proliferation by inhibiting Raf-1/extracellular signal-regulated kinase (ERK) via cAMP/protein kinase A (PKA). In addn. to cAMP/PKA activation, trapidil inhibits RhoA/ROCK activation.
