The members of the plasminogen activation system and the mechanism of plasminogen activation: Binding of pro-uPA to its specific receptor, uPAR, causes the conversion of plasminogen into plasmin
, which is achieved by proteolytic cleavage.

receptor in acute poststreptococcal glomerulonephritis," Journal of the American Society of Nephrology, vol.
Cysteine proteases from the Asclepiadaceae plants latex exhibited thrombin and plasmin
With the recent clinical introduction of ocriplasmin (microplasmin/Jetrea; ThromboGenics, Iselin, NJ) which is a recombinant truncated version of plasmin
approved by the US Food and Drug Administration for the treatment of symptomatic vitreomacular traction, one would expect a better outcome of enzyme-assisted PVD in pediatric cases of TMH .
is a serine proteinase which not only acts on fibrin degradation leading to clot dissolution but also activates MMPs, growth factors, and proteinase-activated receptors ([PAR.sub.1]).
After incubation at 37[degrees]C for 10 min, alteplase (100 IU/ml), plasmin
(250 [micro]g/ml), or vehicle was added.
Inhibition of the fibrinolytic system may also occur at the level of plasmin
, mainly by [alpha]2-antiplasmin ([alpha]2AP) .
A lumbar puncture was then performed which prompted the performance of a rapid plasmin
Bovine pancreatic chymotrypsin is the active ingredient in Quimotripsyn[R]--Virbac Laboratories, whose action increases plasmin
, a proteolytic enzyme of endothelial origin that is responsible for lysing excess of fibrin from the inflammatory process and is considered as the key of fibrinolysis (16).
2, pancreatic trypsin efficiently activated the infectivity of almost all strains, except IAV WSN/33(H1N1), and mini- and micro-plasmin (which are degradation products of plasmin
found in inflammatory loci) also activated all strains though less efficiently than trypsin.
The increase in proteolytic activity is associated with higher activity of plasmin
in udders of deteriorating health (Albenzio et al., 2004).
The somatic cells ally themselves with heat-resistant enzymes in the milk called plasmin
, which can degrade proteins in a similar way to bacterial enzymes.
