Fibrin

The protein which composes blood clots; formed from the blood protein fibrinogen.

fibrin

Monomeric fibrin (323 kD) is produced from fibrinogen by proteolytic removal of the highly charged (aspartate- and glutamate-rich) fibrinopeptidesby thrombin, in the presence of calcium ions. The monomer readily polymerizes to form long insoluble fibres (23nm periodicity; half-staggered) that are stabilized by covalent crosslinking (by Factor XIII, plasma transglutaminase). The fibrin gel acts as a haemostatic plug. ...

Fibrin

Fibrin (also called Factor Ia) is a fibrous, non-globular protein involved in the clotting of blood. It is formed by the action of the protease thrombin on fibrinogen which causes the latter to polymerize. The polymerized fibrin together with platelets forms a hemostatic plug or clot over a wound site. When the lining of a blood vessel is broken, ...

fibrin

Insoluble protein involved in blood clotting. When an injury occurs fibrin is deposited around the wound in the form of a mesh, which dries and hardens, so that bleeding stops. Fibrin is developed in the blood from a soluble protein, fibrinogen. The conversion of fibrinogen to fibrin is the final stage in blood clotting. Platelets, a type of cell f...
