a white insoluble fibrous protein formed by the action of thrombin on fibrinogen when blood clots; it forms a network that traps red cells and platelets
A white, albuminous, fibrous substance, formed in the coagulation of the blood.
An elastic, insoluble, whitish protein produced by the action of thrombin on fibrinogen and forming an interlacing fibrous network in the coagulation of blood.
a white, albuminous, fibrous substance, formed in the coagulation of the blood either by decomposition of fibrinogen, or from the union of fibrinogen and paraglobulin which exist separately in the blood. It is insoluble in water, but is readily digestible in gastric and pancreatic juice
the white, albuminous mass remaining after washing lean beef or other meat with water until all coloring matter is removed; the fibrous portion of the muscle tissue; flesh fibrin
an albuminous body, resembling animal fibrin in composition, found in cereal grains and similar seeds; vegetable fibrin
Origin: [Cf. F. fibrine. See Fiber.]
Fibrin is a fibrous, non-globular protein involved in the clotting of blood. It is formed from fibrinogen by the protease thrombin, and is then polymerised to form a "mesh" that forms a hemostatic plug or clot over a wound site. Fibrin is involved in signal transduction, blood coagulation, and platelet activation.
U.S. National Library of Medicine
A protein derived from FIBRINOGEN in the presence of THROMBIN, which forms part of the blood clot.
Is a type of protein.
Fibrin plays a role in the clotting of blood when needed.
