Anglo-French team discover elusive gene that makes platelets gray
Date:7/25/2011

from rare platelet disorders and my group of scientists have used powerful microscopes to determine what was wrong with the platelets from patients with Gray Platelet Syndrome. We discovered in the 1980s that something was wrong with the alpha granules because they were lacking in most of the cases," said Dr Nurden, an international expert in platelet biology. "The gene, however, remained elusive for another 30 years, and it is great how our joint working has discovered the causative gene very quickly."
