plate·let

(plāt'let),
An irregularly shaped, disclike cytoplasmic fragment of a megakaryocyte that is shed in the marrow sinus and subsequently found in the peripheral blood, where it functions in clotting. A platelet contains granules in its central part (granulomere) and, peripherally, clear protoplasm (hyalomere), but no nucleus, is about one third to one half the size of an erythrocyte, and contains no hemoglobin.

platelet

non-nucleated, granular, cell fragment (derived from bone marrow megakaryocytes) within blood (~400 M/mL); they trigger inflammation (by releasing vasoactive amines), facilitate healing (by releasing a number of growth factors) and become enmeshed in fibrin mesh (to form a clot)
