The serine proteases of the trypsin superfamily are versatile enzymes involved in a variety of biological processes. In the cardiovascular system, the importance of these enzymes in blood coagulation, platelet activation, fibrinolysis, and thrombosis has been well established. Recent studies have shown that trypin-like serine proteases are also important in maintaining cardiac function and contribute to heart-related disease processes. In this review, we describe the biological function of… CONTINUE READING
