Some molecular properties of fibrinogen are reviewed, with special emphasis on the more recent hypotheses about the quaternary structure of the molecule. Among the different proteolytic enzymes which can interact with fibrinogen, thrombin and plasmin are mainly dealt with, in view of the role they play in vivo in several pathological or therapeutically induced conditions of intravascular coagulation and/or hyper fibrinolysis.
