Describes a method called the "Membrane Capacitance" Aggregometer, which determines the capacitance changes in blood samples during adenosine diphosphate- and collagen-induced platelet aggregation. Use of the method in the quantitative evaluation of the effect of anti-adhesive drugs; Causal participation of platelet aggregation in hematosis and thrombotic processes; Active changes in platelet membrane function.

    The function of the platelet collagen receptor, 65-kDa, specific for type I collagen (CI), in eukaryotic cells remains elusive. In order to examine the effect of posttranslational modification of the receptor, we have made a construct, which contains the 65-kDa cDNA ligated into pcDNA3...

    Paraphenylene daimine (PPD) is an aromatic amine that is widely used in several industrial products; however, its toxicity has been reported in several cases of cardiac arrests. As platelets play a key role in cardiovascular diseases, we aimed to determine the impact of PPD in vitro and in vivo...

    In a focal injury model, platelets adhere and activate under flow on a collagen-coated surface, creating a field of individual platelet aggregates. These aggregates exhibit distinct structural characteristics that are linked to the local flow conditions. By combining image analysis techniques...

    Platelet-collagen interaction plays an important role in hemostasis and pathological thrombosis. Upon an injury to the subendothelium of a blood vessel wall, platelets adhere to the denuded substrate, aggregate, and release biological substances. Many investigators have explored the use of...

    Hemostasis is the process of sealing a vascular injury with a thrombus to arrest bleeding. The type of thrombus that forms depends on the nature of the injury and hemodynamics. There are many models of intravascular thrombus formation whereby blood is exposed to prothrombotic molecules on a...

  • Platelet-derived NO slows thrombus growth on a collagen type III surface. Williams, Robert H.; Nollert, Matthias U. // Thrombosis Journal;2004, Vol. 2, p11 

    Nitric oxide (NO) is a free radical that plays an important role in modulating platelet adhesion and aggregation. Platelets are a source of vascular NO, but since erythrocytes avidly scavenge NO, the functional significance of platelet-derived NO is not clear. Our purpose was to determine if NO...
