The functional activity and active site of plasmin in full-term newborns have been studied and compared to those in adults in order to investigate the nature of the abnormality found in newborn plasminogen described in a previous paper. The functional activity of newborn plasminogen measured on chromogenic substrate was approximately 18% that of adult plasminogen when streptokinase was used as an activator and 12% when urokinase was used. Proteolysis of newborn plasminogen by urokinase yielding… CONTINUE READING
