The article presents a research that studies the different oxidative ability of fibrinogen domains D and E when exposed to reactive oxygen species (ROS) attack. Fibrinogen is a soluble plasma protein that is responsible for the formation of insoluble fibrin gel in the presence of thrombin. Also, many studies have shown that E region is more resistant to oxidation when exposed to ozone, as compared to D region.

    A definition of the term "fibrin" is presented. It refers to an elastic filamentous protein elaborated from its precursor, fibrinogen, which is present plasma at high concentration. It is formed in response to the actions of thrombin, which cleaves small peptides from the fibrinogen molecule,...

    The article focuses on the study regarding fibrinogen obtained from citrated blood plasma. It says that thrombin was used for the transition of fibrin-stabilizing factor (factor XIII) to the active form (XIIIa). It mentions that incubation of soluble fibrin polymers with factor XIIIa showed the...

    The coagulation system is characterized by the sequential and highly localized activation of a series of serine proteases, culminating in the conversion of fibrinogen into fibrin, and formation of a fibrin clot. Here we show that C-terminal peptides of thrombin, a key enzyme in the coagulation...
