Thrombin as a multifunctional protein: induction of cell adhesion and proliferation.

Abstract

The serine protease thrombin (E.C.3.4.21.5) is well recognized for its central role in hemostasis. In addition, thrombin is unique among the enzymes participating in the clotting cascade, by virtue of its cell activation effects induced via the enzymatic pocket or via functional domains located throughout the molecule. In this review, we elaborate on… (More)
