plate·let

 (plāt′lĭt)
n.
A minute, nonnucleated, disklike cytoplasmic body found in the blood plasma of mammals that is derived from a megakaryocyte and functions to promote blood clotting. Also called blood platelet, thrombocyte.

n.
a small platelike body, esp. a blood platelet.

plate·let

(plāt′lĭt)
Any of the numerous small round structures found in the blood of mammals that function in the clotting of blood. Platelets are formed in the bone marrow, contain no nuclei, and ingest and absorb foreign particles, including viruses.

VASP phosphorylation closely correlates with inhibition of fibrinogen binding to glycoprotein IIb/IIIa (GP IIb/IIIa) (18, 24), and it affects initial sequences of platelet adhesion and activation by modulating interactions of platelet actin filaments (4,19).
Insulin resistance affects the procoagulant state by co-segregating with abnormalities involved in coagulation, including platelet aggregability, platelet adhesion and increased levels of thromboxane, von Willebrand factor, factor VIII, tissue plasminogen activator and fibrinogen.

Von Willebrand Factor, or vWF, is the key adhesive protein that mediates platelet adhesion and aggregation in the PFA-100 test cartridge.
Static platelet adhesion studies using platelet rich plasma showed significantly reduced platelet adhesion on the surface of the modified polymer compared to control PVC.
It targets critical applications in life science research and drug discovery, which include: cell adhesion, platelet adhesion, cell migration and invasion, biofilms, and stem cell research.
These include platelet aggregation studies, platelet count before and after stimulation, adhesion to polymer beads, quantification of high shear platelet adhesion and aggregation, urinary 11-dehydrothromboxane B2, thromboxane generation and platelets flow cytometry.
interference with platelet adhesion to the subendothelium by blocking the collagen binding site.
Other methods include measurement of fibrinogen binding or platelet adhesion.

Typical life science applications include cell invasion, migration, adhesion, chemotaxis, platelet adhesion and aggregation, wound healing, stem cell differentiation, and microbial biofilm formation.
However, as the platelet adhesion and activation of intrinsic coagulation are minimal on drug-coated stent, it is not likely that thrombotic complications will be a problem on these stents.
