Kinetic analyses of the activation of Glu-plasminogen by urokinase in the presence of fibrin, fibrinogen or its degradation products.

Abstract

The kinetics of the activation of Glu-plasminogen (Glu-plg) and Lys-plasminogen (Lys-plg) by urokinase (UK) were studied in purified systems. The activation of plasminogen by UK in the purified systems followed Michaelis-Menten kinetics with a Michaelis constant (Km) of 1.45 microM and a catalytic rate constant (kcat) of 0.93/sec for Glu-plg as compared to… (More)
