Platelet CD40 ligand (CD40L)--subcellular localization, regulation of expression, and inhibition by clopidogrel.


This study compares the subcellular localization and the regulation of expression of the platelet activation markers CD62P and CD63 with CD40 ligand (CD40L) on the surface of washed human platelets. CD40L was expressed upon stimulation with a wide range of platelet activators. However, quantitative flow cytometry demonstrated that, as compared with CD62P… (More)
