A simple method for measuring fibrin volume by means of a modified micrometer has been described. The relation of fibrin volume measured by this method to fibrin weight has been established. Some practical clinical applications of fibrin observations have been briefly presented.

    Transglutaminases are a large family of related and ubiquitous enzymes which catalyze the cross linking of a glutaminyl residue of a protein/peptide substrate to a lysyl residue of a protein/peptide co-substrate. In addition to lysyl residues, other second nucleophilic co-substrates may include...

    Objective: Refractory fistula formation is one of most intractable complications in Crohn's disease. Recently, the role of blood coagulation Factor XIII has been recognized as an important wound-healing factor. We investigated the plasma concentration and functional activity of blood coagulation...

    Fibrin plays an important role in wound healing and regeneration, and enjoys widespread use in surgery and tissue engineering. The enzymatic activity of Factor XIIIa was employed to covalently incorporate exogenous bioactive peptides within fibrin during coagulation. Fibrin gels were formed with...

    Fibrin deposition in kidney is a common event in some forms of human and experimental glomerulonephritis, and is thought to result from local activation of blood coagulation and/or impaired removal by the fibrinolytic system. We studied the urinary procoagulant and fibrinolytic activities in 46...
