PRODUCT DETAILS

Arachidonic Acid is a fatty acid present in the granules and membranes of human platelets.

It is liberated from phospholipids and, in the presence of the enzyme cyclo-oxygenase, incorporates oxygen to form the endoperoxide prostaglandin G2 (PGG2).  PGG2 is then quickly transformed to prostaglandin H2 (PGH2) which in turn is converted to thromboxane A2 a potent inducer of platelet aggregation. Ingestion of aspirin or aspirin-containing compounds inhibits cyclo-oxygenase mediated oxygen consumption, thus precluding all subsequent events leading to platelet aggregation.
