Cellular effects of thrombin: pharmacology of the receptor(s) in various cell types and possible development of receptor antagonists.


Thrombin is a key enzyme in the coagulation cascade being the final effector responsible for the conversion of fibrinogen to fibrin. Thrombin as an enzyme also acts on other substrates of the coagulation system, thus resulting in procoagulant tendencies, potentiation of ongoing reactions, feedback inhibition and/or limitation of clotting.
