PLASMIN (22.214.171.124) is a serine protease that is a key enzyme in the process of fibrinolysis. Plasmin is released into circulation as its inactive form, plasminogen, which can be activated by enzymes such as urokinase. The plasmin/plasminogen system has been studied for its role in inflammation, degradation of the extracellular matrix, and wound healing. BioAssay Systems’ DPLM-100 kit provides a convenient colorimetric method to measure plasmin activity. In this assay, plasmin hydrolyzes a synthetic substrate to release p-nitroanilide (pNA), which absorbs at 405 nm. The increase in absorbance at 405 nm is directly proportional to the enzyme activity.
