Alterations of blood platelet function induced by neutral proteases from human leukocytes.


Washed human platelets are damaged by two neutral proteases from human leukocytes (elastase-like protease, ELP and chymotrypsin-like protease, CLP). The damage is manifested as inhibited aggregation by ristocetin and collagen, and enhanced aggregation by ADP in the presence of fibrinogen. Similarly to alpha-chymotrypsin (alpha-CT), CLP also increases… (More)
