Inhibitory effect of fibronectin on the fibrin formation

Thrombosis Research
J Niewiarowska, C S Cierniewski


125I-fibronectin is incorporated into fibrin when blood plasma is clotted with thrombin. This process is dependent upon fibronectin concentration, temperature, and the presence of calcium ions. Fibronectin appears to be a very strong inhibitor of fibrin formation and influences both the thrombin clotting time and fibrin quality.

Blood Clotting Disorders

Thrombophilia includes conditions with increased tendency for excessive blood clotting. Blood clotting occurs when the body has insufficient amounts of specialized proteins that make blood clot and stop bleeding. Here is the latest research on blood clotting disorders.
