Plasminogen, AT3, protein C and S, alpha-2 antiplasmin and alpha-1 antitrypsin are also produced in the liver.
The production of plasminogen, alpha-2 antiplasmin, histidine-rich glycoprotein and FXIII is decreased in liver diseases.

Measurements included complete blood count (CBC); platelets; PT; activated partial thromboplastin time (APTT); fibrinogen (clottable, immunological); coagulation factors II, V, VII, VIII, IX, X, XI, XII; anti-thrombin (AT); alpha-2 antiplasmin (AP); Protein C (PC); mixing studies; lupus anticoagulant screening; plasminogen; thrombin-anti-thrombin; fibrin degradation products (FDP); d-dimer; and thrombin time.
We then performed PT; activated partial thromboplastin time (APTT); fibrinogen (clottable and immunological); d-dimer; reptilase time; thrombin times; coagulation factors II, V, VII, VIII, IX, X, XI, XII; anti-thrombin (AT); alpha-2 antiplasmin (AP); protein C (PC); mixing studies (using rabbit normal plasma); lupus anticoagulant screening and confirmatory testing (dilute Russell's viper venom [American Diagnostica, Greenwich CT], STACLOT LA, [Diagnostica-Stago, Inc.
Innovative Alpha-2 Antiplasmin Diagnostic Testing Technologies and Emerging Markets
Plasmin is rapidly inactivated by alpha-2 antiplasmin when not bound to fibrin therefore minimizing risk of systemic bleeding.
