The reaction between plasmin and C1-inhibitor results in plasmin inhibition by the serpin mechanism.


C1-inhibitor is an important inhibitor of plasma kallikrein and C1, but also has inhibitory activity against numerous other plasma proteinases such as plasmin. The relevance of plasmin inhibition by the C1-inhibitor has been debated, with some evidence showing that plasmin causes significant proteolysis of C1-inhibitor. In the present study, we show that C1… (More)
