Another important function that day by day acquires greater relevance is the one related to its use like therapeutic agent directed to stimulate the cellular proliferation and the cicatrización the tissue.
Constitute the storage site of biologically active proteins, contain granules called alpha, rich in proteins that are clustered in the center of the platelet during platelet activation.
