How many proteins are contained in platelets?

By William Aird

About 5000.

Summary of 47 platelet proteomics studiesA, Platelet proteomics has been used to characterize the global proteome, specific subproteomes, activity-based protein profiling (ABPP), and post-translational modifications (PTM). B, These studies are mainly (40%) based on 2-dimensional gel electrophoresis (2-DE)/difference gel electrophoresis (DIGE),whereas gel-free methods (23%) are still under-represented. Combination refers to studies using 2-DE/DIGE in combination with other approaches. COFRADIC indicates combined fractional diagonal chromatography; and MudPIT, multidimensional protein identification technology. Source.
