The mechanism by which vesicles are formed is not entirely clear. This study was undertaken to determine whether a link exists between the operation of the plasma membrane Na C /H C exchanger (NHE) and vesiculation. It was found, that platelets treated with NHE-simulating monensin and the sodium in ux-inducing gramicidin (without concomitant H C ef ux) produced vesicles demonstrating procoagulant activity. Alkalinization of platelet cytosol by NH 4 Cl failed to evoke vesicle release. Collagen and phorbol ester (PMA)-evoked vesiculation was diminished in the presence of 5-( N - ethyl- N -isopropyl amiloride) (EIPA, inhibitor of NHE) or GF 109203X (inhibitor of protein kinase C). Vesicle formation induced by collagen, PMA, and the calcium ionophore A23187 was less pronounced in the absence of external Na C .
