GP6

GP6

A gene on chromosome 19q13.4 that encodes a 58-kD platelet membrane glycoprotein, which plays a central role in the collagen-induced platelet activation and aggregation. Injury to the vessel wall and damage to the endothelial lining exposes the subendothelial matrix to blood flow, resulting in deposition of platelets. Collagen, especially types I, III and VI, are the most thrombogenic macromolecules of the extracellular matrix. The adhesion of platelets to collagen results in activation, leading to platelet secretion, recruitment of additional platelets and aggregation resulting in a platelet plug, which limits blood loss. However, collagen exposure after rupture of atherosclerotic plaques results in thrombus formation and may lead to myocardial infarction or stroke.

DUCATI couldn't have chosen a better time to launch its Desmosedici RR - the road version of its 990cc GP6 MotoGP bike.
The chassis gets Ducati's signature steel trellis frame and the same steering geometry as the GP6 - the engine cases and cylinder heads are cast aluminium, the engine covers are cast magnesium and parts such as footrest hangers are beautifully machined from solid.
The task was simple: keep as much of the track-engineered GP6 as possible, while making the bike amenable to traversing regular roads, meeting emission and safety standards throughout the globe.
The frame of the Desmosedici RR--a tubular trellis hybrid design--is the same geometry of the GP6 racing bike, complete with a rear seat support made of high-temperature resin-type carbon fiber.

Of these seven gene variants, the strongest evidence for association with DVT was found for three common variants of CYP4V2, a novel cytochrome p450 gene, SERPINC1, and GP6.
The GP6 gene encodes glycoprotein VI, a 58-kDa platelet membrane glycoprotein that plays a crucial role in the collagen-induced activation and aggregation of platelets and may play a role in DVT.
