Plasmin is a normal substance found in the blood that breaks down clots.

yes enzyme can be use for dissolve fibrin blood clots in human body . enzymes act directly on fibrin stands within the clot and increase the amount of plasmin in blood. plasim dissolve clots in blood.

The enzyme that digests fibrin clots is plasmin.

Enzymes that break down fibrin and dissolve clots.

Protein residing in blood plasma which converts to fibrin if blood clots.

Medications given to dissolve blood clots would be thrombolytics.

Fibrin is a protein in the body which is involved in the process of clotting blood. Fibrin creates a mesh that clots over a wound site and stops bleeding.

works with platelets to help form scabs or clots works with platelets to help form scabs or clots

It is possible for blood clots inside the body to dissolve, but that is not guaranteed. If the clots are outside the body, they can eventually be removed or scratched off.

Fibrin is not normally present in the bloodstream because it is a part of a blood clot. To have circulating fibrin would be to have circulating blood clots, which is a medical emergency. Within the plasma, however, is the precursor to fibrin - fibrinogen. When this is activated, such as by signalling molecules released by damaged cells lining a blood vessel, fibrinogen is cut into fibrin at that location to create a clot and stop the bleeding.

PlateletsthrombocyteBlood cells that help form blood clots are platelets and red blood cells.Also, clotting factors are released, converting prothrombin to thrombin, which is the enzyme that converts fibrinogen to fibrin, which assists in the blood clotting process.

in the coagulase test, normally a virulent staphylococcus is put into plasma. plasma contains the plasma protein fibrinogen. when fibrinogen is acted upon by a fibrinogenase, it is then converted to fibrin. fibrin has te ability to form clots. so in the case of staphylococcus aureus which has the enzyme coagulase also called fibrinogenase, the enzyme acts on the fibrinogen in plasma which is converted to fibrin hence the clots that are seen suspending in the solution after 4 hours.

Fibrinogen is a plasma glycoprotein which is converted to fibrin by thrombin to help form clots.

It doesn't make blood - its a component of blood (plasma). It is polymerized by thrombin to form fibrin, a major component in blood clots.

It depends on whether it is a platelet-only clot or a fibrin clot. A thrombin clot is dissolved by thrombolysis. Platelet clots disaggregate spontaneously.

Platelets are involved in coagulation and form a temporary patch and a building ground for the more permanent clot, which is formed by fibrin multimers.

The 3 stages of hemostasis are: 1) Vascular Spasm where there is a high resistance to blood flow as arterioles leading to the damaged area vasoconstrict. 2) Platelet Plug: is wher sticky cell fragments adhere to the site of the damaged blood vessel and the aggregated platelets secrete Adenosine Diphosphate causing more platelets to aggretage and congrugate around the blood vessel 3) Blood Clots: blood clots become trapped in fibrin mesh....fibrin comes from fibrinogen and goes through a process to form fibrin called coagulation cascade. The fibrin adhere to one another forming a mesh. The mesh becomes stronger by Factor VIII stabalizing the bond on the fibrin.

They produce fibrin that helps form clots

Heparin is used to thin the blood so that clots will not form. It does this by changing the body's clotting system. The actually science definition is fairly complicated- It works by inactivating thrombin in the clotting process. This stops the formation of fibrin and so stops the blood clots from forming.

thrombolytic therapy (treatment with drugs that dissolve blood clots) is an alternative

Venous thrombi are rich in fibrin and trapped red blood cells and are therefore referred to as "red clots". In contrast, arterial thrombi have a higher concentration of platelets and a lower concentration of red blood cells and are referred to as "white clots".

There are fibrinolytic enzymes and proteins in the blood stream that break apart clots as they form.

Fibrin is one of the main proteins involved in forming clots and plasmin is one of the main proteins involved in breaking down clots.
