Plasminogen activation by tissue plasminogen activator in the presence of stimulating CNBr fragment FCB-2 of fibrinogen is a two-phase reaction. Kinetic analysis of the initial phase of slow plasmin formation.
Plasminogen activation by tissue-type plasminogen activator (t-PA) is stimulated by fibrin. In a purified system maximal fibrin-enhanced plasmin formation occurs with a delay after an initial phase of slow plasmin formation (lag phase). In the present study purified stimulating CNBr-fragment FCB-2 of fibrinogen was used, and kinetics of plasminogen… (More)
