Negative staining of whole mounts of platelets preserves several structures not previously described. External to the plasma membrane there is a coat which contains electron dense bodies of varying shape. External to the coat is a region which stains intensely with phosphotungstate. Platelet granules coexist with tubules in the granulomere as well as with a large number of other membraneous structures. A speculative interpretation of the function served by these structures in platelet… CONTINUE READING
