Platelet-activating factor, 5-hydroxytryptamine, thromboxane A2, adenosine diphosphate and thrombin are known to activate platelets by stimulating calcium entry1,2, but the nature of the entry pathways is unknown3. We present the identification of single divalent cation channels from thrombin-activated human platelets. Membrane vesicles from unstimulated… CONTINUE READING
