GP9

A gene on chromosome 3q21.3 that encodes a surface membrane platelet glycoprotein, which forms a 1-to-1 non-covalent complex with glycoprotein Ib, functioning as a von Willebrand factor receptor. The complete receptor complex consists of alpha subunit, beta subunit (the GP9 product) and platelet glycoprotein V.

Furthermore, TNF RI, TLR3, CD42a, CD80, and CD83 as well as Annexin V, Flotillin-1, and Alix were detected on the majority of the plasma sEVs.
On flow cytometric immunophenotyping, the blasts were positive for CD34, CD45, CD10, CD19, and CD22 and negative for CD3, CD5, CD7 CD13, CD33, CD14, CD42a, CD61, and glycophorin A.
This facilitated identification of the platelets within the blood and was confirmed by the analysis of CD42a expression.
