FunctionFibrinogen is a plasma glycoprotein synthesized primarily in the liver (1). It is comprised of two identical molecular halves, each consisting of three non-identical subunit polypeptides designated as A alpha, B beta- and gamma-chains held together by multiple disulfide bonds (2). Fibrinogen acts as the main factor in the formation of a blood clot by polymerization to a fibrin network and by enabling platelets to aggregate (3). The conversion of fibrinogen to fibrin is triggered by thrombin, which cleaves fibrinopeptides A and B from alpha and beta chains, and thus exposes the N-terminal polymerization sites responsible for the formation of the soft clot. The soft clot is converted into the hard clot by factor XIIIA which catalyzes the epsilon-(gamma-glutamyl)lysine cross-linking between gamma chains (stronger) and between alpha chains (weaker) of different monomers. Defects in fibrinogen are a cause of congenital afibrinogenemia, a rare autosomal recessive disorder, and amyloidosis type 8, also known as systemic non-neuropathic amyloidosis or Ostertag-type amyloidosis (4).
