Abstract Washed canine platelets were shown to express a significant level of von Willebrand factor (vWf). Canine platelet vWf differed from canine plasma vWf by the absence of satellite bands associated with each multimer when resolved by SDS-agarose gel electrophoresis. Expression and multimeric composition of canine platelet vWf was quite similar to that of human platelet vWf. Quantification in both lysed, washed canine platelets and in releasate of washed canine platelets yielded estimates of platelet vWf at approximately 2\% of circulating vWf in this species, with approximately 15\% of this being released into the fluid phase on activation. This contrasts with findings in humans, in which approximately 10\%-25\% of circulating vWf is compartmentalized in platelets. The difference in relative levels of canine and human platelet vWf could not be accounted for by differences in platelet ultrastructure. The decreased relative level may account for reports that canine platelets contain no vWf.
