A group of integrins that includes the platelet outer membrane glycoprotein gpiib-iiia (platelet glycoprotein gpiib-iiia complex) and the vitronectin receptor (receptors, vitronectin). They play a major role in cell adhesion and serve as receptors for fibronectin, von willebrand factor, and vitronectin.
