    Why couldn't D) also be an answer choice here? Don't most microorganisms also contain endonuclease for alterations to DNA / DNA repair? @orgoman22

    I think they're talking specifically about the fibrinogen to fibrin mechanic, so it would be specifically looking for coagulase.

    You are correct, microorganisms do produce Endonucleases. However, the question specifically referred to the process of converting Fibrinogen to Fibrin. Endonucleases do not perform this finction.

    Hope this helps.
