- PubMed Abstract:
The thrombolytic serine protease tissue-type plasminogen activator (t-PA) is a classical modular protein consisting of three types of domain in addition to the serine protease domain: F1 (homologous to fibronectin type I); G (epidermal growth factor-like) and kringle. Biochemical data suggest that the F1 and G modules play a major role in the binding of t-PA to fibrin and to receptors on hepatocytes.
