"alpha-2-Antiplasmin" is a descriptor in the National Library of Medicine's controlled vocabulary thesaurus,
MeSH (Medical Subject Headings). Descriptors are arranged in a hierarchical structure,
which enables searching at various levels of specificity.
A member of the serpin superfamily found in plasma that inhibits the lysis of fibrin clots which are induced by plasminogen activator. It is a glycoprotein, molecular weight approximately 70,000 that migrates in the alpha 2 region in immunoelectrophoresis. It is the principal plasmin inactivator in blood, rapidly forming a very stable complex with plasmin.
- Serpin F2
- alpha-2 Antiplasmin
- alpha 2 Antiplasmin
- alpha 2-Plasmin Inhibitor
- alpha 2 Plasmin Inhibitor
- alpha(2)-Plasmin Inhibitor
