 [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.

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.
