Abstract

A variety of fatty acids can become covalently attached to platelet proteins by thioester linkage. These fatty acids include palmitate, myristate, stearate, arachidonate, and eicosapentaenoate. More than 20 platelet proteins can be acylated by fatty acids. Several of the acylated platelet proteins have been identified, including glycoprotein Ibβ, glycoprotein IX, P-selectin, G-protein α subunits, and CD9. This report reviews the fatty acid acylation of platelet proteins.
