Platelet Membrane Glycoprotein - Receptors Involved in Platelet Adhesion To Collagen

Receptors Involved in Platelet Adhesion To Collagen

Membrane glycoproteins GPIa/IIa, GPVI and probably GPIV as well, function as receptors engaged in platelet adhesion to collagen. The leading role in the elimination of high-stress injury is taken by the GPIb-IX-V complex.

Famous quotes containing the words receptors and/or involved:

    Our talk of external things, our very notion of things, is just a conceptual apparatus that helps us to foresee and control the triggerings of our sensory receptors in the light of previous triggering of our sensory receptors.
    Willard Van Orman Quine (b. 1908)

    No man is an island entire of itself; every man is a piece of the Continent, a part of the main.... Any man’s death diminishes me because I am involved in Mankind; and therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for thee.
    John Donne (c. 1572–1631)
