Assessing the Role of GPIb-IX-V Complex in Transmitting Platelet Cytoskeletal Forces
Platelets rapidly seal wounds in blood vessels, preventing blood loss. They bind to ex-posed vascular matrix at the wound site through a highly specialized surface receptor, the glycoprotein (GP) Ib-IX-V complex, which recognizes von Willebrand factor (VWF) in the matrix. This bond is unique in that it becomes more stable as ...
