Scientists at Purdue University set out to confirm the presence of high molecular weight plasminogen
molecules in milk and to see if other forms are present in milk at even higher molecular weights.
Increases in plasminogen
activation in animal muscle following muscle injury combined with the finding of local expression of plasminogen
activators in skeletal muscle may suggest muscle contributes to the large increase in tPA seen with exercise (3,14,24,26,28,29).
Lactational competence and involution of the mouse mammary gland require plasminogen
Briefly, cells conditioned by GSE were incubated in serum free medium containing 20 [micro]g/ml plasminogen
for 3 hours.
Thrombolytic therapy with recombinant tissue plasminogen
activator for acute ischemic stroke: where do we go from here?
Desmodus rotundus salivary plasminogen
activator (DSPA) destroys fibrin, which is produced during blood coagulation.
Activator (uPA) has been speculated to convert plasminogen
into plasmin, which degrades the extracellular matrix and provides a pathway through which neural crest cells migrate.
They discovered that a common blood protein, plasminogen
, sticks to rogue prions but ignores the normal variety.
plays an important role in early regeneration and wound repair in vertebrates, and there are similarities between echinoderm coelomocytes and the immune systems of vertebrates.
Similarly, in a cost-effective analysis of thrombolytic therapy with tissue plasminogen
activator (t-PA) compared to streptokinase, the authors conclude, "The cost-effectiveness of treatment with accelerated t-PA rather than streptokinase compares favorably with that of other therapies whose added medical benefit for dollars spent is judged by society to be worthwhile.
Angiostatin and endostatin are fragments of two larger proteins, collagen and plasminogen
, that occur naturally in the body.
Nash, MD, FAHA, CPI are currently enrolling patients to participate in clinical research trial investigating potential use of a plasminogen
activator derived from vampire bats to treat individuals experiencing an acute ischemic stroke.
