|Other Names||Platelet glycoprotein IX, GP-IX, GPIX, Glycoprotein 9, CD42a, GP9|
|Format||Synthetic peptide was lyophilized with 100% acetonitrile and is supplied as a powder. Reconstitute with 0.1 ml DI water for a final concentration of 1 mg/ml.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C.|
|Precautions||This product is for research use only. Not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||The GPIb-V-IX complex functions as the vWF receptor and mediates vWF-dependent platelet adhesion to blood vessels. The adhesion of platelets to injured vascular surfaces in the arterial circulation is a critical initiating event in hemostasis. GP-IX may provide for membrane insertion and orientation of GP-Ib.|
|Cellular Location||Membrane; Single-pass type I membrane protein|

This gene encodes a small membrane glycoprotein found onthe surface of human platelets. It forms a 1-to-1 noncovalentcomplex with glycoprotein Ib, a platelet surface membraneglycoprotein complex that functions as a receptor for vonWillebrand factor. The complete receptor complex includesnoncovalent association of the alpha and beta subunits with theprotein encoded by this gene and platelet glycoprotein V. Defectsin this gene are a cause of Bernard-Soulier syndrome, also known asgiant platelet disease. These patients have unusually largeplatelets and have a clinical bleeding tendency.
