Plasmin-mediated activation and inactivation of thrombin-activatable fibrinolysis inhibitor.

Abstract

Activated thrombin-activatable fibrinolysis inhibitor (TAFIa) attenuates the fibrin cofactor function of tissue-type plasminogen activator-mediated plasmin formation and subsequently fibrin degradation. In the present study, we focused on the role of plasmin in the regulation of TAFIa activity. Upon incubation with plasmin, TAFIa activity was generated… (More)
