Platelets contain proteins with biochemical properties that are well adapted to promoting hemostasis. One important adhesive protein is von Willebrand factor (vWF), which is a very large protein comprised of a series of multimers, ranging from 860,000 to over 10 million daltons. In this report we describe a second platelet protein, p-155, which has a similar unique multimeric composition. Using agarose-acrylamide gel electrophoresis, platelet p-155 was shown to be composed of multimers ranging… CONTINUE READING
