Variations on fibrinogen-erythrocyte interactions during cell aging.

Erythrocyte hyperaggregation, a cardiovascular risk factor, is considered to be caused by an increase in plasma adhesion proteins, particularly fibrinogen. We have recently reported a specific binding between fibrinogen and an erythrocyte integrin receptor with a β(3) or β(3)-like subunit. In this s...
