Platelet activation by sustained exposure to low-dose plasmin.

Abstract

Plasmin has been reported to activate and inhibit platelet function depending on dose and exposure temperature. The present study examines the induction of fibrinogen-dependent platelet aggregation following prolonged (60 min) platelet exposure to very low doses of plasmin (0.05 CU/ml) at either 22 or 37 degrees C. Maximum aggregation [mean +/- SD, 60… (More)
