The demonstration that high doses of aspirin blunted the antithrombotic effects of the P2Y12 inhibitor ticagrelor in the PLATO trial  is consistent with this hypothesis. Role of P2Y12 in platelet thrombus formation in vitro and in vivo Several studies reported the important role of the P2Y12 receptor in platelet thrombus formation and stabilization on collagen-coated surfaces or ruptured atherosclerotic plaques under flow conditions . Studies of P2Y12 KO mice and of wild-type animals treated with P2Y12 antagonists or inhibitors, using different models of experimental arterial and venous thrombosis, have clearly demonstrated the important role of this receptor in thrombogenesis in vivo.
Alternative sources of arachidonic acid are arachidonylethanolamide (anandamide) and 2-arachidonylglycerol . COX activity requires an activating hydroperoxide to generate a tyrosyl radical at Tyr385, which is essential to initiate catalytic activity.
