MLCP (myosin light chain phosphatase) regulates platelet function through its ability to control myosin IIa phosphorylation. Recent evidence suggests that MLCP is a de facto target for signalling events stimulated by cAMP. In the present mini-review, we discuss the mechanisms by which cAMP signalling maintains MLCP in an active state to control platelet contractile machinery.
