Electrophoretic profiles of the molecular weight distributions of fibrinogen derivatives in blood provide a tool for combined assessment of coagulation and fibrinolysis in the course of vascular disease. Profiles obtained in studies on an experimental model of hypertension and in humans with occlusive vascular disease are discussed. In the experimental studies elevations in the level of cross-linked dimers provided a more reliable means for predicting development of malignant hypertension than… Expand

Fibrinogen Genotyping in Peripheral Vascular Disease
TLDR
There was no association between plasma fibrinogen level and any genotype and strong linkage disequilibrium was found between the alpha/TaqI and gamma/KpnI/SacI markers and the beta/BclI and beta/HaeIII markers which was highly significant at any level. Expand

Deposition of modified fibrinogen within the aortic intima.
TLDR
Clot formation may not be the principle pathway to deposition of the protein related to fibrinogen in the aortic intima, indicating that the deposits are formed by a process analogous to the formation and stabilization of cryoprofibrin in blood. Expand
Acute arterial fibrinoid deposition and ischaemic parenchymal damage of the kidney. Pathogenic factors in the development of malignant hypertension
The development and evolution of hypertensive vascular lesions affecting the arterial supply of (a) the kidney and (b) organs other than the kidney were studied in rats developing either malignantExpand
MONOCYTE/MACROPHAGE‐MEDIATED CATABOLISM OF FIBRINOGEN AND FIBRIN
TLDR
The authors' longstanding interest in SFC, which is demonstrable in large quantities in the circulation in clinical and experimental thrombotic states, led us to the systematic exploration of the degradation of these macromolecules by intact macrophages and macrophage enzymes reported below. Expand
The fibrinolytic system. Recent advances.
TLDR
This review highlights some of the advances in molecular biology applied to various proteins in the fibrinolytic system to produce larger quantities of traditional and genetically engineered plasminogen activators and the laboratory tests that may be employed. Expand
Human fibrinogen heterogeneities. I. Structural and related studies of plasma fibrinogens which are high solubility catabolic intermediates.
TLDR
Observations strengthen the notion that it is plasmin which catalyzes the formation of early intermediates in vivo, in that the γ and Bβ chains appeared to be intact, but few or no intact Aα chains were present. Expand
SIGNIFICANCE OF CRYOPROFIBRIN IN FIBRINOGEN-FIBRIN CONVERSION
TLDR
The applicability of cryoprofibrin as an indicator of fibrin deposition is demonstrated by the occurrence of levels of CryoproFibrin approaching the threshold for precipitation of fibin in plasma from endotoxin-treated rabbits. Expand
In vitro formation and i vivo clearance of fibrinogen: fibrin complexes.
TLDR
Evidence is provided that fibr inogen and fibrin can form a macromolecular complex which is stable both in vitro and vivo and the reticuloendotheial system was shown to mediate the the in vivo clearance of this complex. Expand
Cofibrins and Fibrin‐Intermediates as Indicators of Thrombin Activity in Vivo
A cold-precipitable, thrombin-coagulable protein, tentatively designated “cryoprofibrin,” was separated from plasma of rabbits treated with E. coli endotoxin. It was shown to containExpand
Identification and Distribution of Fibrinogen, Fibrin, and Fibrin(ogen) Products in Atherosclerosis: Use of Monoclonal Antibodies
TLDR
The observed distribution of the different molecular forms of fibrinogen suggests the possibility that the cells present in the lesions actively participate in the flbrinogen-to-fibrln transition within the vessel wall. Expand
Kinetic characterization of a saturable pathway for rapid clearance of circulating fibrin monomer.
TLDR
The uniquely rapid and saturable clearance of alpha-fibrin is suggested to involve uptake through the fibrin aggregation site that is blocked by fibrineopeptide A in fibr inogen and beta-fibin and by tight binding to fibrInogen in soluble complexes formed by alpha beta-Fibrin. Expand
