Platelet aggregation is accompanied by the tyrosine phosphorylation of several proteins including syk. However, some of these proteins are not identified. Recent studies showed that LAT is a syk substrate and is tyrosine phosphorylated during T cell stimulation. In this study, we demonstrated that LAT is present in platelets and is tyrosine phosphorylated in response to ADP- and thrombin-stimulated aggregation. Moreover, LAT, like syk and beta3, translocates to the cytoskeleton during the late stage of thrombin-stimulated irreversible aggregation and not during ADP-stimulated reversible aggregation.
