Endothelial cells preferentially produce prostacyclin, which prevents the aggregation of platelets and acts as a potent vasodilator. Platelets, on the other hand, preferentially produce thromboxane, which favors aggregation of platelets and vasoconstriction. PGE2 stimulates smooth muscle cell contraction. Lipoxygenase pathway: Leukotrienes (LTC4, LTD4, and LTE4) formed by this pathway act on smooth muscle cells of bronchi and blood vessels. In asthma, they cause bronchoconstriction, vasoconstriction, and increased vascular permeability; thus, they are known as slow-reacting substances of anaphylaxis (SRS-A).
