GPIX The GPIb-V-IX complex functions as the vWF receptor and mediates vWF-dependent platelet adhesion to blood vessels. The adhesion of platelets to injured vascular surfaces in the arterial circulation is a critical initiating event in hemostasis. GP-IX may provide for membrane insertion and orientation of GP-Ib. Defects in GP9 are a cause of Bernard-Soulier syndrome (BSS); also known as giant platelet disease (GPD). BSS patients have unusually large platelets and have a clinical bleeding tendency.
