Title: Staphylokinase
CAS Registry Number: 9040-61-3
Literature References: Fibrin-specific plasminogen activator lacking enzymatic activity; produced by certain strains of Staphylococcus aureus. Consists of 136 amino acids in a single polypeptide chain without disulfide bridges; several molecular forms have been purified, mol wt 16,500-18,000. Forms a stoichiometric complex with the proenzyme plasminogen, q.v., that becomes biologically active after the conversion of plasminogen to the proteolytic enzyme plasmin, q.v.
