Clotting is effected by a substance called fibrinogen. For clotting to occur, this protein fibrinogen is converted into fibrin which are fine fibers that trap the blood corpuscle to form clot. It is therefore safe to regard the fibrin as the fibrous tissue of the blood connective tissue while the corpuscle remain the cellular basis.
