tissue-type plasminogen activator;
tPA;
t-PA
Class
Hydrolases;
Acting on peptide bonds (peptidases);
Serine endopeptidases
BRITE hierarchy
Reaction(IUBMB)
Specific cleavage of Arg!Val bond in plasminogen to form plasmin
Comment
A peptidase of family S1 (trypsin family) from a wide variety of mammalian tissues, especially endothelial cells. Secreted as a single chain precursor which is cleaved to a two-chain form by plasmin. Activity is considerably enhanced by fibrin. Formerly included in EC 3.4.21.31 and EC 3.4.99.26
History
EC 3.4.21.68 created 1972 as EC 3.4.99.26, transferred 1978 as EC 3.4.21.31, part transferred 1992 to EC 3.4.21.68
