Combinatorial mutagenesis of the reactive site region in plasminogen activator inhibitor I.


Plasminogen activator inhibitor (PAI-I) rapidly inactivates tissue plasminogen activator (t-PA) and urokinase (UK) with nearly identical association rate constants. The contributions of Ser344, Ala345, and Arg346 (P3, P2, and P1 residues, respectively) in PAI-I to inhibition of UK and t-PA were evaluated using combinatorial mutagenesis of the human PAI-I… (More)
