ABSTRACT
Reports on a study of a platelet ADP receptor, designated P2Y, and provides evidence that a patient with a bleeding disorder has a defect in this gene. Role of platelets in maintaining normal haemostasis; How ADP mediates platelet aggregation through its actions with two G-protein-coupled receptor subtypes; Suggestion that cloning of the P2Y[sub12] receptor should facilitate the development of better antiplatelet agents to treat cardiovascular diseases.
