Once activated, plasmin
breaks down fibrin, resulting in the formation of D-dimer, a fibrin degradation product and a clinical marker of fibrinolysis.
Under physiologic conditions, the conversion ofplasminogen to plasmin
is regulated by activators such as tissue plasminogen activator (tPA), urokinase plasminogen activator (uPA), and FXIIa.

Many pathogenic bacteria have been shown to bind host plasmin
to disseminate and cause disease, and we hypothesize that Escherichia coli surface-exposed Lpp can bind plasminogen.
Lysteda is a nonhormonal lysine analog that acts as a competitive plasmin
inhibitor; it is not a contraceptive.
is involved in the destruction of the extracellular matrix which is rich in fibrin.
Washington, March 9 ( ANI ): Doctors use drugs that activate plasmin
, a powerful blood enzyme that disposes of blot clots, to treat patients who suffer heart attack or stroke.
21) Agents that preserve hemostasis through plasmin
inhibition include Epsilon aminocaproic acid (EACA or Amicar[R]), tranexamic acid (TA), and aprotonin.
Likewise, in the IBD patients with increased disease activity, plasminogen activator inhibi-tor-1 levels are increased and it is a potent inhibitor of fibrinolysis, working via inhibiting plasmin
splits fibrin, fibrinogen, factor V and factor VIII inducing a "systemic lytic state" (18,19).
hydrolyzes the casein in milk, causing proteolysis that leads to poor quality in milk products.
Microplasmin is a truncated form of the natural human protein plasmin
