Structure and Function of Platelet Membrane Glycoproteins as Studied by Crossed Immunoelectrophoresis
This chapter presents studies of platelet membrane glycoproteins based on crossed immunoelectrophoresis (CIE). Crossed Immunoelectrophoresis has been a critical method in assessing the structure of membrane glycoproteins, their organization within the membrane, their interactions with other intrinsic proteins and external ligands, and their abnormalities in disease states. Such studies with human platelets have provided new insights into membrane glycoprotein structure, function, and organization that were not previously appreciated.
