Fibrino(geno)lytic enzyme «Blomulyse» from Agkistrodon blomhoffii ussuriensis venom has been isolated in three chromatography steps. The purified enzyme is a typical single-chain metalloproteinase with molecular weight of approximately 30 kDa. Obtained enzyme hydrolyzed with high-efficiency the A?-chain of fibrinogen followed by the B?-chain and showed no effect on the ?-chain.

Using different model systems in vitro we indicated that fibrolyse has no effect on the platelets aggregation stimulated by collagen, but on the other hand it inhibited ADP- and adrenalin-induced platelet aggregation.

Key words: fibrino(geno)lytic enzyme, snake venom, Agkistrodon, fibrinogen, platelets.
