Lipopolysaccharide from enterohemorrhagic Escherichia coli binds to platelets through TLR4 and CD62 and is detected on circulating platelets in patients with hemolytic uremic syndrome.
This study presents evidence that human platelets bind lipopolysaccharide (LPS) from enterohemorrhagic Escherichia coli (EHEC) through a complex of toll-like receptor 4 (TLR4) and CD62, leading toExpand
