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.
