Novel Bioactivity of Ellagic Acid in Inhibiting Human Platelet Activation

Figure 2

Inhibitory effect of ellagic acid on relative mobilization and phospholipase C 2 (PLC 2) activation in collagen-activated platelets. Washed platelets were preincubated with 50 and 80 μM ellagic acid or 0.5% DMSO, followed by the addition of 1 μg/mL collagen to trigger (a) relative mobilization and (b) PLC 2 phosphorylation. The data are presented as the means ± S.E.M. ( ). ** and *** , compared with the control (resting) group; # and ### , compared with the collagen-treated group.
