The ChemDiv library contains 27 000 compounds targeted at Macl-GPIb alpha Interaction.

Leukocyte-platelet interaction is important in mediating leukocyte adhesion to a thrombus and leukocyte recruitment to a site of vascular injury. This interaction is mediated by the β2-integrin Mac-1 (also known as integrin αMβ2) and its counter-receptor on platelets, glycoprotein Ibalpha (GPIb), a component of the GP Ib-IX-V complex, the platelet von Willebrand factor (vWf) receptor. [1]

Studies showed that the Macl-GPIb alpha interaction involves the Mac-1 I domain (homologous to the vWf A1 domain), and the GPIb leucine-rich repeat and COOH-terminal flanking regions. Since leukocyte–platelet interactions bidirectionally induce signals that amplify pro-inflammatory and pro-thrombotic cellular responses, it provides a molecular target for disrupting leukocyte-platelet complexes that promote vascular inflammation in thrombosis, atherosclerosis, and angioplasty-related restenosis. [2]

Current anti-thrombotic drugs, including antiplatelet agents and anticoagulants, are associated with significant bleeding risk and increased mortality. It was shown that small-molecule targeting of Mac-1-GPIb interaction successfully inhibits thrombosis. Moreover, it was identified that targeting this interaction has anti-thrombotic therapeutic potential with reduced bleeding risk. [1]
