crosslinked fibrin multimer:tissue plasminogen activator (one-chain):plasminogen -> crosslinked fibrin multimer:tissue plasminogen activator (one-chain) + plasmin

Stable Identifier
Homo sapiens

Plasminogen bound to fibrin is cleaved and activated by tissue plasminogen activator also bound to the fibrin. The association of both plasminogen and tissue plasminogen activator with a fibrin clot juxtaposes the two molecules, facilitating their interaction (Hoylaerts et al. 1982). Early studies suggested that tissue plasminogen activator itself might require activation (conversion to its two-chain form) before it could catalyze this reaction (e.g., Higgins and Vehar 1987). More recent work (Boose et al. 1989) indicates that the single-chain form of the molecule is catalytically active, although cleavage increases its activity and may thus serve to accelerate the later stages of fibrinolysis.

Annexin A2 (ANXA2) is a multicompartmental, multifunctional protein that forms a heterotetramer with its endothelial cell-surface binding partner protein S100-A10 (S100A10) (Rety et al. 1999). The tetramer is able to positively modulate tissue plasminogen activator-dependent activation of the fibrinolytic protease, plasmin from its plasminogen precursor (Luo et al. 2013, Hedhli et al. 2012).
