GPVI glycoprotein is a major collagen receptor that plays a crucial role in the collagen-induced activation and aggregation of platelets. As well as collagen, other ligands such as collagen-related peptide (CRP) and
snake venom protein (convulxin) can bind to the extracellular region of GPVI causing ectodomain GPVI shedding1. This process is tightly regulated by a metalloproteinase, most likely ADAM10, providing a mechanism for the modulation of platelet responsiveness. Most GPVI is maintained in a monomeric form on resting platelets and GPVI dimerization is an active process that primes platelet interaction with fibrillar collagen and is controlled by cAMP.
