fibrinolysin

 [fi″brĭ-nol´ĭ-sin]
2. a preparation of proteolytic enzyme formed from profibrinolysin (plasminogen) by action of physical agents or by specific bacterial kinases; used to promote dissolution of thrombi.

plas·min

(plaz'min),
A serine proteinase catalyzing the hydrolysis of peptides and of esters of l-arginine and l-lysine and converting fibrin to soluble products; occurs in plasma as the precursor plasminogen (profibrinolysin) and is activated to plasmin by organic solvents, which remove an inhibitor, and by streptokinase, trypsin, and plasminogen activator, all cleaving a single arginyl-valyl bond; plasmin is responsible for the dissolution of blood clots.
Synonym(s): fibrinase (2) , fibrinolysin
