Blocking α5β1 Integrin Attenuates sCD40L-Mediated Platelet Activation.


The soluble form of CD40L (sCD40L) is a platelet-derived mediator that links inflammation, hemostasis, and vascular dysfunction. Indeed, blockade of CD40L by neutralizing antibodies or genetic disruption in mice prevents atherosclerosis and atherothrombosis. Until recently, it was believed that CD40 and αIIbβ3 were the only receptors on platelets… (More)
