Overview of Platelet Physiology: Its Hemostatic and Nonhemostatic Role in Disease Pathogenesis
After an injury in the vessel wall, activation of platelets begins to start. It involves its adhesion to the subendothelium surface. Interaction between receptors like GPIb-V-IX, GPIa-IIa, and subendothelial compounds like vWf and collagen triggers the release of platelet granule contents accelerating aggregate formation.
