Best Answer

"Thrombolysed" means breaking down or dissolving a blot clot.

"Streptokinase" is a drug that is used to break down blot clots.

For example, this may be done to treat a heart attack, where a blot clot is blocking the flow of blood to part of the heart.

What is the difference between the mechanisms of action of streptokinase and tissue plasminogen activator in treating thrombosis?

Both are thrombolyltic drugs. Streptokinase binds to the active complex. It promotes the cleavage of the Arg/Val bond of plasminogen leading to the formation of plasmin. The plasmin then breaks down the matrix of the thrombus. A tissue plasminogen activator is alteplase. It binds to fibrin-rich clots and cleaves the Arg/Val bond of plasminogen to produce plasmin. The plasmin then breaks down the matrix of the thrombus.
