Neutrophil granulocyte-dependent proteolysis enhances platelet adhesion to the arterial wall under high-shear flow

Abstract

SUMMARY BACKGROUND Under high shear stress platelets adhere preferentially to the adventitia layer of the arterial vessel wall in a von Willebrand factor (VWF)-dependent manner. OBJECTIVE The present study was undertaken in an attempt to characterize the structural background of the relative thromboresistance of the media and the impact of neutrophil… (More)
