  1. Fibrin

    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.
