Integrin alphaIIbbeta3 (glycoprotein IIb-IIIa, GP IIb-IIIa) is one of the major platelet receptor that is involved in aggregation and adhesion of platelets. In resting stage alphaIIbbeta3 is inactive and does not interact with its ligands but upon activation or vascular injury it binds to the ECM protein von Willebrand factor (vWf) and stimulate the platelet aggregation.
