UNLABELLED Stimulated platelets release at least two antiheparin proteins: platelet factor 4 (PF4) and low affinity platelet factor 4 (LA-PF4) from which beta-thromboglobulin (beta TG) is derived. We have found previously marked elevation of LA-PF4/beta TG antigen in platelet poor plasma of patients with chronic renal failure, whereas levels of PF4 remained… CONTINUE READING
