In this study, the ability of sphingosine-1-phosphate (S1P) to modulate platelet aggregation induced by other agents in platelet-rich plasma (PRP) was investigated. S1P alone did not stimulate platelet aggregation in PRP. S1P inhibited the platelet aggregation induced by the TRAP peptide (6.75 μM), noradrenaline (NA; 12.5 μM) and the Ca2+ ionophore (5.0-9.5 μM). S1P also increased the response time of platelets to arachidonic acid (AA), but decreased the response time to PMA. S1P displayed a dual effect on sodium fluoride (NaF)-induced platelet aggregation and had no effect on the aggregation induced by ADP or lysophosphatidic acid (LPA). Furthermore, S1P blocked the synergistic interaction of oleyol-lysophosphatidic acid (O-LPA) with the TRAP peptide or noradrenaline, while the synergistic interaction of O-LPA with ADP remained largely unaffected.
