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.

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.
