Connexin 37 limits thrombus propensity by downregulating platelet reactivity

Published inCirculation, vol. 124, no. 8, p. 930-939
Publication date2011

Formation of platelet plug initiates hemostasis after vascular injury and triggers thrombosis in ischemic disease. However, the mechanisms leading to the formation of a stable thrombus are poorly understood. Connexins comprise a family of proteins that form gap junctions enabling intercellular coordination of tissue activity, a process termed gap junctional intercellular communication.
