A platelet glycoprotein Ib-binding protein (GPIb-BP) was isolated from the snake venom of Bothrops jararaca. Jararaca GPIb-BP showed a single band with M(r) of 30,000, and two distinct bands with M(r) of 17,000/13,000 under non-reducing and reducing conditions, respectively, on SDS-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis. Jararaca GPIb-BP itself induced neither… CONTINUE READING
