Development of a radioimmunoassay for the fibrinogen-derived peptide B beta 1-42.

Abstract

The peptide B beta 1-42 is the initial cleavage product of plasmin-mediated proteolysis of the NH2-terminal region of fibrinogen or fibrin I, while beta 15-42 is the major fragment released by plasmin degradation of fibrin II. Numerous studies have described the measurement of plasma B beta 1-42 levels as an index of plasmin activity. Previous assays were… (More)
