Release of beta-lysin from platelets by thrombin and by a factor produced in heparinized blood.


Removal of calcium by either citrate, oxalate, or ethylenediaminetetraacetate inhibited coagulation of blood at an early stage and prevented the release of beta-lysin from platelets. In contrast, heparin caused platelet agglutination and stimulated beta-lysin release in vitro and in vivo. This release was calcium dependent and may have been due to a calcium… (More)
