  • Several tissue remodeling events that require extracellular proteolysis are thought to be mediated by plasminogen activators that convert the inactive proenzyme plasminogen to active plasmin. The involvement of plasminogen activator in many biological phenomena reflects the ubiquitous presence of plasminogen and the ability of numerous cell types to synthesize plasminogen activator in a highly regulated manner. Increased plasmin and plasminogen activator in bovine milk are correlated with… CONTINUE READING
