Disintegration and reorganization of fibrin networks during tissue-type plasminogen activator-induced clot lysis.

Abstract

In this study, we investigated tissue-type plasminogen activator (tPA)-induced lysis of glutamic acid (glu)-plasminogen-containing or lysine (lys)-plasminogen-containing thrombin-induced fibrin clots. We measured clot development and plasmin-mediated clot disintegration by thromboelastography, and used scanning electron microscopy (SEM) to document the… (More)
