Effects of actin filaments on fibrin clot structure and lysis.

Abstract

The muscle and cytoskeletal protein actin is released from cells as a consequence of cell death and interacts with components of the hemostatic and fibrinolytic systems, including platelets, plasmin, and fibrin. We report here that incorporation of actin filaments into fibrin clots changes their viscoelastic properties by increasing their shear modulus at… (More)
