This is the first report of variant type GT caused by homozygous p.724R > X mutation of β3 integrin. The mutation results in truncated cytoplasmic domain, that renders the receptor unable to undergo conformational change required for fibrinogen binding. The receptor count on non-activated platelets was moderately decreased (approximately 50% of normal), and the activation-dependent recruitment of αIIbβ3 receptor complex to the platelet surface became deficient, underlining the role for the cytoplasmic tail of β3 integrin in this process.
