Beilstein Registry Number 906872
Biochemical Physiological Actions EACA is reported to inhibit chymotrypsin, Factor VIIa, lysine carbo­xy­peptidase, plasmin, and plasminogen activator. Lysine analog. Promotes rapid dissociation of plasmin, thereby inhibiting the activation of plasminogen and subsequent fibrinolysis. Reported to inhibit plasminogen binding to activated platelets. An early report indicated that it inhibits the activation of the first component of the complement system. Binds and inactivates Carboxypeptidase B.
