Background Information

CD42b, also known as platelet glycoprotein Ib alpha chain (GPIb alpha), is a type I transmembrane glycoprotein of 135-145 kDa (PMID: 2656709). It is expressed on platelets and megakaryocytes. CD42b and CD42c (GPIb beta) are linked by a disulphide bond to form GPIb (PMID: 7660135). GPIb forms a noncovalent complex with CD42a (GPIX) and CD42d (GPV) and acts as a receptor for von Willebrand factor (vWF) and thrombin (PMID: 7660135; 3759960). The GPIb-V-IX complex mediates vWF-dependent platelet adhesion to blood vessels. Defects in the expression of CD42b result in Bernard-Soulier syndromes and platelet-type von Willebrand disease (PMID: 9371310).
