fibrin

 [fi´brin]
an insoluble protein that is essential to clotting of blood, formed from fibrinogen by action of thrombin.

fi·brin

(fī'brin),
An elastic filamentous protein derived from fibrinogen by the action of thrombin, which releases fibrinopeptides A and B from fibrinogen in the coagulation of blood; a component of thrombi, vegetations, and acute inflammatory exudates such as in diphtheria and lobar pneumonia.
[L. fibra, fiber]

/fi·brin/ (fi´brin) an insoluble protein that is essential to clotting of blood, formed from fibrinogen by action of thrombin.

fibrin

(fī′brĭn)
n.
An elastic, insoluble, whitish protein produced by the action of thrombin on fibrinogen and forming an interlacing fibrous network in the coagulation of blood.

fi′brin·ous adj.

fibrin

[fī′brin]
Etymology: L, fibra, fiber
a stringy insoluble protein produced by the action of thrombin on fibrinogen in the clotting process. Fibrin is responsible for the semisolid character of a blood clot. Compare fibrinogen. See also blood clotting, coagulation, fibrinolysis, thrombin.

fibrin

An insoluble protein that forms as a fibrous network when the blood protein fibrinogen interacts with THROMBIN. Fibrin is the basis of a blood clot and the end product of a complex cascade of reactions set in motion by injury to a blood vessel.

Fibrin

The last step in the coagulation process. Fibrin forms strands that add bulk to a forming blood clot to hold it in place and help "plug" an injured blood vessel wall.

fibrin

elastic, filamentous, insoluble protein formed as the endproduct of the clotting cascade; derived from plasma fibrinogen (factor I) by the action of thrombin (derived from factor II)

fibrin (fīˑ·brin),

n white, insoluble protein that makes up a blood clot by forming a network in which red blood cells and platelets are trapped; formed by the action of thrombin on fibrinogen.

fibrin-fibrinogen degradation products (FDPs)
the breakdown products of fibrin and fibrinogen, resulting from activation of the fibrinolytic system, they inhibit fibrin formation and platelet adherence. Elevated levels are found in the blood and urine in association with disseminated intravascular coagulation and detection is a test for that condition.
fibrin-fibrinogen split products

fibrin foam
a clot promoting surgical material for application to oozing surfaces. Strips of fine white sponge to be soaked in thrombin solution before application.
fibrin glue
a mixture of bovine thrombin and concentrated fibrinogen. It may be used topically or by injection in management of hemostasis.
fibrin plate method
a method of measuring fibrinolytic activity by incubating a fibrin clot with test serum in a Petri dish.
soluble fibrin monomers
a stage in the clot formation process of producing insoluble fibrin monomers.
