Moreover, although Limulus amebocytes are multifunctional, activation by bacterial LPS produces major changes in their cytoskeletal organization that are closely similar to those occurring in vertebrate thrombocytes
and mammalian platelets.
About hematological and biochemical parameters, our results showed that WBC, RBC, and Urea, Glucose, Lactate, respectively, were higher in males respect to females even if statistically significant difference was observed only in thrombocyte
Blood samples were taken from the caudal vein using heparinized syringes in order to determine blood variables; white blood cells and thrombocytes
were estimated using blood smears.
But under analysis of aggregatogram received by exhibiting ethanol solution II, there is a noticeable decrease of aggregation speed and the size of average thrombocyte
In Ho's study, similar to increased thrombocyte
count, increased WBC count influenced blood viscosity while no significant relation could be detected in plasma viscosity (5).
In an adult study, effects of age, gender and weight on serum, thrombocyte
and plasma BDNF levels were evaluated in 140 healthy adults within age range 20-60 yrs.
In a usual condition the basic quantity of the circulating vWF has endothelial origin; however, activation of platelets can lead to increase of their concentrations in blood-flow of thrombocytes
Consequently, we hypothesized that perinatal exposure to background levels of dioxins in the Netherlands would cause a persistent decrease in circulating thrombocyte
For objectives (a) and (b) we employed dogfish erythrocytes and thrombocytes
(Mustelus canis), blood ark erythrocytes (Anadara ovalis), and horseshoe crab amebocytes (Limulus polyphemus), all of which contain a marginal band (MB) of microtubules.
counts in the smear were subjectively evaluated as decreased, adequate, or increased.
19 There was also thrombocyte
hyperactivity in paroxysmal and chronical atrial fibrillation.
Haematobiochemical studies shows normal values within range except variation in thrombocyte
count, showing thrombocytopenia.
