8 (155). The necessity of calcium for the conversion of prothrombin to thrombin by the thromboplastic factor has given rise to many explanations. Quick (171) has sought to show that prothrombin contained calcium in its molecule. Other workers (108, 138) assign a purely catalytic function to this cation. The final decision will have to await the analyses of pure prothrombin. It is possible that experiments with radioactive calcium could contribute to a solution of this problem. A discussion of methods for the determination of the prothrombin level in blood will be found in several recent monographs (16, 173).

Other Substances with Activating or Coagulating Properties In the following discussion it will be preferable to distinguish between substances having an activating effect on prothrombin and those that are themselves thrombin-like in action. The most interesting substance, as far as a thromboplastic effect is concerned, probably is trypsin. That blood, even in the presence of oxalate (loo), could be clotted by this enzyme has long been known (56). The same effect was later demonstrated for crystalline trypsin (164).
