Proteomic technology has the potential to transform the way we analyze platelet biology, through the determination of platelet protein composition and its modification upon stimulation and with disease. We are a considerable way from achieving these goals, however, because of significant limitations in current methodology. It is therefore important to consider the extent to which these aims can be met and the way that proteomic data should be presented and used. These issues are discussed in the present paper by the Platelet Physiology Subcommittee of the ISTH Scientific Standardisation Committee (SSC). It is recommended that proteomic information be combined with data from other experimental approaches to establish a database on protein expression and function in platelets.
