Steady-state binding of ADP to blood platelets and isolated membranes has not previously been obtained because of complications arising from metabolism of the ligand and dilution due to its secretion from storage granules. In the present studies, competition binding isotherms (n = 9) using paraformaldehyde-fixed platelets showed that [2-3 H]ADP bound to two sites with a small amount (approximately 5% of total) of nonspecific binding: 410,000 +/- 40,000 sites of low affinity (Kd 7.9 +/- 2.0… CONTINUE READING
