Preferential involvement of a phospholipase A2-dependent pathway in CD69-mediated platelet activation.

CD69 is a signal transducing disulfide-linked homodimer functionally expressed on platelets, CD3bright thymocytes, and activated lymphocytes. In an attempt to investigate early molecular events in CD69-mediated cell activation we studied the relative contribution of phospholipase A2 (PLA2) and phosphatidylinositol-specific phospholipase C-dependent pathways… CONTINUE READING
