HEMOSTASIS, THROMBOSIS, AND VASCULAR BIOLOGY The 1 helix– 13 strand spanning Leu214 to Val229 of platelet glycoprotein Ib facilitates the interaction with von Willebrand factor: evidence from characterization of the epitope of monoclonal antibody AP1

Abstract

The glycoprotein Ib-IX-V (GP Ib-IX-V) complex mediates platelet binding to von Willebrand factor (VWF) through its largest polypeptide, GP Ib . Of the many GP Ib monoclonal antibodies described, AP1 is of particular interest because it blocks static VWF binding induced by 2 modulators, ristocetin and botrocetin, and platelet adhesion to VWF surfaces under… (More)
