A novel coagulation inhibitor from Schistosoma japonicum
What is it about?
This publication is about functional characterization of a novel Kunitz type protease inhibitor produced by the human blood fluke Schistosoma japonicum. This novel protein named as SjKI is also a potent coagulation inhibitor which is important for the survival of blood fluke in the mammalian host.
Why is it important?
This newly identified protein,SjKI, is the first functionally characterized coagulation inhibitor of Schistosoma japonicum.
