Allosteric effects potentiating the release of the second fibrinopeptide A from fibrinogen by thrombin.


Fibrin formation depends on the release of the two N-terminal fibrinopeptides A (FPA) from fibrinogen, and its formation is accompanied by an intermediate, alpha-profibrin, which lacks only one of the FPA. In this study, we confirm that the maximal levels of alpha-profibrin found over the course of thrombin reactions with human fibrinogen are only half of… (More)
