There are a few different substrates that are hydrolyzed by plasmin. If I want to use as short incubation times as possible, and need a selective substrate for plasmin, which should I choose?
The substrates for plasmin include S-2251™, S-2302™, and S-2403™. While S-2251™ is a popular and suitable substrate for detection of plasmin, S-2403™ has a higher kcat/km value. It is a faster substrate, and incubation times can be shorter. S-2403™ is therefore the substrate of choice for this situation.
