Figure 2: Aggregation of Platelets by Tannerella forsythia: Tannerella forsythia cells (0.1-20 μl; 103 cells/μl) were added to 450 μl Platelet-rich plasma (300,000 plts/μl). After various lag times, platelet shape change was observed by increase in absorbance, followed by platelet aggregation (a rapid decrease in absorbance). Adenosine diphosphate (10 μl, 1.0 mg/ml) was added at 20 min (arrow) to confirm the ability of the platelets to aggregate
