Eptifibatide

Identification

Name
Eptifibatide
Accession Number
DB00063
Description

Synthetic cyclic hexapeptide that binds to platelet receptor glycoprotein and inhibits platelet aggregation. Derived from venom of the Southeastern pygmy rattlesnake (Sistrurus miliarus barbouri), eptifibatide is a cyclic heptapeptide that belongs to the class of arginin-glycin-aspartat-mimetics.

Pharmacodynamics

Eptifibatide is an anti-coagulant that selectively and reversibly blocks the platelet glycoprotein IIb/IIIa receptor.

Mechanism of action

Eptifibatide inhibits platelet aggregation by reversibly binding to the platelet receptor glycoprotein (GP) IIb/IIIa of human platelets, thus preventing the binding of fibrinogen, von Willebrand factor, and other adhesive ligands. Inhibition of platelet aggregation occurs in a dose- and concentration-dependent manner.
