However, vWf binding to GpIb-V-IX complex induces the activation and cytoskeletal association of [pp60.sup.src] and PIK (14); this behavior resembles that observed in Ni[Cl.sub.2]-treated platelets.
Our aim was thus to verify whether the GpIb-V-IX complex has a role in Ni[Cl.sub.2]-induced platelet activation and to investigate the molecules involved in the signal transduction cascade that follows Ni[Cl.sub.2] binding to platelet membrane.
For the equilibrium binding studies, the crude membrane homogenates (~ 2.5 mg wet tissue per assay) were incubated with 0.4-10 nM [[sup.3]H]-8-OH-DPAT or, in the case of displacement experiments, with 2 nM [[sup.3]H]-8-OH-DPAT and other ligands for 60 min at 25[degrees]C, and the free ligand was removed by fast filtration through a glass-fibre filter (GF/B, Whatman International Ltd., Madistone, UK), which was pretreated with 0.3% (w/v) polyethylenimine before use.
All binding data were analysed by nonlinear least-squares regression analysis by using a commercial program GraphPad PRISM[TM] (GraphPad Software, San Diego, CA, USA).
