Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Blood platelets are cells able to interact with numerous chemical substances such as biogenic amines, prostaglandins and drugs. Platelet plasma membrane and intracellular structures possess a number of 'receptors' which may selectively bind and handle both endogenous and exogenous compounds. Current concepts on platelet receptors for biogenic amines, prostaglandins E1, D2 and I2 and salicylates are briefly reviewed and some 'models' proposed.
