Reduced thrombin binding and aggregation in Bernard-Soulier platelets.


Platelets from two patients with Bernard-Soulier disease showed a reduction in their ability to bind human thrombin. Thrombin binding studies in the high affinity range showed 1,500 sites for the Bernard-Soulier platelets as against 4,000 for normal controls. However, the dissociation constant was the same for both normals and patients (4.4 nM) indicating… (More)
