“Activated platelets extend filopodia.
Actin and myosin contract, forcing out the contents of platelet granules.
Degranulated platelets secrete:
– Serotonin and thromboxane A (enhance vascular spasms).
– ADP (enhances platelet aggregation and secretion).
– Platelet factor (PF3, activates blood coagulation).
– Calcium (essential for blood coagulation).
– Factor XIII (FSF) covalently crosslinks fibrin monomers.
– PDGF (promotes growth of fibroblasts).
– VEGF (promotes growth of vascular endothelial cells).”
