STUKINASE - Streptokinase(SK), a protein secreted by several species of streptococci can bind and activate human plasminogen. SK is used as an effective and inexpensive clot-dissolving medication in some cases of myocardial infarction (heart attack) and pulmonary embolism. STUKINASE belongs to a group of medications known as fibrinolytics, and complexes of STUKINASE with human plasminogen can hydrolytically activate other unbound plasminogen by activating through bond cleavage to produce plasmin. There are three domains to Streptokinase, denoted α (residues 1–150), β (residues 151–287), and γ (residues 288–414). Each domain binds plasminogen, although none can activate plasminogen independently.
