Chloride channels are necessary for full platelet phosphatidylserine exposure and procoagulant activity


Platelets enhance thrombin generation at sites of vascular injury by exposing phosphatidylserine during necrosis-like cell death. Anoctamin 6 (Ano6) is required for Ca2+-dependent phosphatidylserine exposure and is defective in patients with Scott syndrome, a rare bleeding disorder. Ano6 may also form Cl− channels, though the role of Cl− fluxes in platelet… (More)
