Introduction: Fibrinogen

Description of Fibrinogen

Fibrinogen: A fibrillar protein present in blood plasma; it converts to fibrin during the process of blood clot formation.
Source: Diseases Database

Fibrinogen: plasma glycoprotein clotted by thrombin, composed of a dimer of three non-identical pairs of polypeptide chains (alpha, beta, gamma) held together by disulfide bonds; fibrinogen clotting is a sol-gel change involving complex molecular arrangements.

Fibrinogen: Plasma glycoprotein clotted by thrombin, composed of a dimer of three non-identical pairs of polypeptide chains (alpha, beta, gamma) held together by disulfide bonds. Fibrinogen clotting is a sol-gel change involving complex molecular arrangements: whereas fibrinogen is cleaved by thrombin to form polypeptides A and B, the proteolytic action of other enzymes yields different fibrinogen degradation products.
