Glycoprotein Ib (GP Ib) is a platelet surface membrane glycoprotein composed of a heterodimer an alpha chain and a beta chain that is linked by disulfide bonds. The Gp Ib functions as a receptor for von Willebrand factor (VWF). The complete receptor complex includes noncovalent association of the alpha and beta subunits with platelet glycoprotein IX and platelet glycoprotein V. The binding of the GP Ib-IX-V complex to VWF facilitates initial platelet adhesion to vascular subendothelium after vascular injury and also initiates signaling events within the platelet that lead to enhanced platelet activation thrombosis and hemostasis. This gene encodes the alpha subunit. Several polymorphisms and mutations have been described in this gene some of which are the cause of Bernard-Soulier syndromes and platelet-type von Willebrand disease. [provided by RefSeq Mar 2010]
