Fibrinogen is a soluble protein found in blood plasma and is produced by the liver cells. The protein is a hexamer consisting of two sets of disulfide linked chains. Fibrinogen is essential for blood coagulation as the precursor of fibrin. It is converted to fibrin by the action of thrombin in the presence of calcium ions.
