Over the past decade, the existence of cell-surface receptors for components of the plasminogen system, t-PA, u-PA, plasminogen and plasmin, has been demonstrated. Plasminogen receptors have been detected on virtually all cell types tested, and occupancy has also been demonstrated in biological settings. Characteristic features of plasminogen receptors include their relatively low affinity and their extraordinarily high density on many cells. These receptors recognize the lysine binding sites… CONTINUE READING
