1. Tissue plasmin activator _______________
a) helps in wound healing
b) allergy response
c) immunity

9. Which of the following plasma protein is involved in coagulation of blood?
a) Albumin
b) Globulin
c) Fibrinogen
d) Amylase
View Answer

Answer: c
Explanation: Fibrinogen is a glycoprotein, during tissue injury it is converted by thrombin to fibrin and subsequently to a fibrin based blood clot.

10. In the clotting mechanism pathway, thrombin activates factors ___________
b) XI IX X
View Answer

Answer: a
