Thrombocytin, a serine protease from Bothrops atrox venom, caused platelet aggregation and release of platelet constituents at a concentration of 10(-7) M and clot retraction at a concentration of 2 x 10(-9) M. Thrombocytin was slightly more active when tested on platelets in plasma than on washed platelets suspended in Tyrode--albumin solution. Thrombin was 5 times more active than thrombocytin when tested on platelets in plasma and 50 times more active when tested on washed platelets. The… CONTINUE READING
