Single-chain membrane glycoprotein that forms a non-covalent complex with GPIb. (MW23kDa) Reactivity with resting and activated platelets, weakly on monocytes, megakaryocytes and attachment site for the platelet plasma membrane to the submembrane cytoskeleton. GPIb/IX complex, functions as the receptor for ristocetin-induced binding of von Willebrand factor and as the von Willebrand factor-depend adhesion receptor.


Provided as sterile filtered solution in phosphate buffered saline with 0.08% sodium azide and 0.2% carrier protein
