Caption: s called proplatelets. As the proplatelet development continues small platelets are formed along the proplatelet processes. Thrombopoietin plays a role in inducing the megakaryocytes to form small proplatelet processes that then form immature platelets and eventually mature blood platelets. Shown in this image is a newly formed, mature, activated platelet after megakaryocyte differentiation. Mature activated platelets have numerous cytoplasmic extensions and channels of the open canalicular system (OCS) seen in this image. Magnification: x5,335 when shortest axis printed at 25
