Plasmin

plasmin

(Science: enzyme) trypsin like serine protease that is responsible for digesting fibrin in blood clots. Generated from plasminogen by the action of another protease, plasminogen activator.

The enzyme catalyses the hydrolysis of peptide bonds at the carbonyl end of lysine or arginine residues. It also acts on activated hagemann factor and on complement.

Question about the coagulation cascade

... ATP by more than 1,000 fold but I also have seen references that heparin increases TPA activity. Since TPA, by itself, can convert plaminogen to plasmin it is not clear to me how heparin can inhibit XIIa conversion while increasing TPA. I am asking all this because I don't care about coagulation ...
