Mechanisms of receptor shedding in platelets

Montague, Samantha; Andrews, R.K.; Gardiner, Elizabeth


The ability to upregulate and downregulate surface-exposed proteins and receptors is a powerful process that allows a cell to instantly respond to its microenvironment. In particular, mobile cells in the bloodstream must rapidly react to conditions where infection or inflammation are detected, and become proadhesive, phagocytic, and/or procoagulant.
