Meizothrombin efficiently activates mechanically triggered platelets and enhance collagen-, ADP- and adrenalin-induced aggregation of platelet-rich blood plasma. Thus, in clotting system activation zone meizothrombin is able to enhance process of involving platelets in clotformation. Prethrombin 1 inhibits collagen-, ADP- and adrenalin-induced aggregation of platelet-rich blood plasma and so regulates not only plasm but platelet hemostasis by reverse negative relation.

Key words: meizothrombin, prethrombin?1, thrombin, platelets.
