Platelet-endothelial cell tetra-span antigen (PETA-3) was originally identified as a novel human platelet surface glycoprotein, gp27, which was detected by a monoclonal antibody (MoAb), 14A2.H1. Although this glycoprotein is present in low abundance on the platelet surface, MoAb 14A2.H1 stimulates platelet aggregation and mediator release. We now report… CONTINUE READING
