Radioactivity was measured in the platelet-free plasma and in the platelet pellet. The uptake was calculated as the volume occupied by the radioactive compound relative to its concentration in plasma. of ADP radioactivity and that very little uptake occurred using other labelled nucleoside diphosphates (GDP, IDP and UDP). Earlier work by Professor Born (1965) showed that the continuing uptake of ADP radioactivity represented the uptake of ADP metabolites, principally adenosine. Incubation at 18 "C, 27 "C and 37 "C resulted in significant differences in the slope of uptake of radioactivity; however, the three uptake curves extrapolated to a common value which we took as an indication of ADP binding.
Koch (1967) using the Dupont Luminescence biometer reagent kit (E. I. ). 51Cr in the supernatant solutions or in samples of the platelet suspensions was counted in a well-type crystal scintillation counter. RESULTS The addition of [14C]ADP to a suspension of washed rabbit platelets led to the formation of [14C]ATP (Table 1). At equirnolar concentrations, much less [14C]GDP and [14C]CDPwere converted to their triphosphates than was [14C]ADP to its triphosphate. Also shown in this table is the effect of adding ATP to the suspending medium.
In order to correlate the binding of the [14C]ADP by the membrane vesicles with physiologically induced platelet aggregation, we studied the relative inhibitory effects of various agents known to interfere with ADP-induced platelet aggregation. For these studies varying amounts of non-radioactive agents known to influence platelet function were preincubated with the membrane vesicle suspension, after which [14C]ADP was added (Fig. 3). ADP and 2-chloroadenosine were the most potent inhibitors of membrane [14C]ADP binding.
