Plasma protein from the blood of farmed S. salar
Salmon thrombin is a unique hemostatic and analgesic. In animal studies, it provides significant and sustained relief from post-surgical, bone, and burn pain.
Salmon thrombin and fibrinogen form fibrin gels that have demonstrated remarkable properties in stem cell culture and neuron survival and growth.
- Salmon fibrin gels represent the optimal extracellular matrix for neuronal and stem cell culture.
- Salmon fibrin gels also have properties superior to mammalian gels in an in vitro angiogenesis model. The salmon gels were 60-188% more efficient than human fibrin gels supporting growth of human endothelial cells. These results indicate that salmon fibrin may be attractive alternate ECM for support of microvascular network formation.
- Salmon fibrinogen and thrombin can be used at < room temperature.
- Soft salmon fibrin gels have been shown to promote selection and growth of tumorigenic cells.
