Fixed platelets, bearing covalently bound fibrinogen, were previously shown to participate passively in aggregation induced by thrombin or A23187. The bound fibrinogen was specifically required for the interaction. The present study examines the role of the release reaction in controlling the passive participation of the fixed platelets in aggregation… CONTINUE READING
