Name  Triabin, pallidipin/procalin Short Name  Triabin_pallidipin/procalin
Type  Family Description  This family contains saliva proteins from haematophagous insects that counteract vertebrate host haemostasis events such as coagulation,vasoconstriction and platelet aggregation []. These include: Triabin, a serine-protease inhibitor. It forms a non-covalent complex with thrombin at a molecular ratio of 1:1, and inhibits thrombin-induced platelet aggregation.Pallidipin, an anticollagen induced platelet aggregation factor also found in Triatoma pallidipennissalivary homogenates. Procalin, the major allergen of Triatoma protractasaliva. All members of this family belong to MEROPS proteinase inhibitor family I59, clan IZ.
