Can low protein cause low platelets? 

5 answers found

These results indicate that protein interactions with platelets may generate different results, depending on the mode of protein exposure.

Thus, platelets freed from a thrombus may have increased responsiveness to low concentrations of aggregating agents other than thrombin.

Recent discoveries confirm protein synthesis by unnucleated platelets in response to activation.

Thus, human platelets contain protein S in alpha granules that can be released by thrombin stimulation.

Our results further emphasize the 'opposing effects' of very low and low density lipoproteins as compared to high density lipoproteins on platelets and/or platelet-thrombin interaction.
