Summary

The spreading of human platelets requires the presence of ADP as do other platelet functions. In the plasma of patients with a failure of release of ADP from the platelets the also decreased ability to spread can be normalized by exogenous ADP. AMP and ATP inhibit the spreading of platelets.
