The abnormal proplatelet formation in MYH9-related macrothrombocytopenia results from an increased actomyosin contractility and is rescued by myosin IIA inhibition.


BACKGROUND Mutations in the MYH9 gene cause autosomal dominant MYH9-related diseases (MYH9-RD) that associate macrothrombocytopenia with various other clinical conditions. The mechanisms giving rise to giant platelets remain poorly understood. OBJECTIVES/PATIENTS To study the proplatelet formation (PPF) derived from megakaryocytes (MKs) generated in vitro… (More)
