EFFECT OF THE POLYSACCHARIDE PREPARATION FROM THE LEAVES OF IPOMOEA BATATAS (L.) LAM ON PLATELET COUNT AND ITS MECHANISM
Li Mingyi,et al Department of Biochemistry
In this paper, we have made researches in the effect and mechanism of the polysaccharide prepar-ation from the leaves of lpomoea batatas (L.) Lam on platelet Count. An ideal thrombocytopenic ani-mal model has been established by intraperitoneal injection of antiplatelet serum (APS). We have fou-nd that this polysaccharide preparation increases the number of platelets and the level of thrombopoie-tin (TPO) evidently The results suggest that one important mechanism of the effect of this polysacch-aride preparation is closely associated with its stimulation on the production of thrombopoietin.
