Comments:  In some experimental systems P2Y12/P2Y13 receptors were found to be coupled to [Ca2+]i increases. In particular in microglial cells and satellite glial cells from trigeminal ganglia, the ADP-induced [Ca2+]i responses were significantly reduced after pretreatement with Cangrelor, an antagonist selective for P2Y12 and P2Y13, thus suggesting that a component of the [Ca2+]i responses evoked by ADP results from P2Y12 and P2Y13 receptor activation. [5,8]. In rat cerebellar astrocytes P2Y13 has been found to mediate intracellular calcium responses to BzATP [7].
