Expert Answer:

Tissue plasminogen activator is a serine protease found on endothelial cells and is involved in the breakdown of blood clots. 

Cyclosporine is an immunosuppressant medication taken by mouth or by injection into a vein for rheumatoid arthritis, psoriasis, Crohn's disease, nephrotic syndrome, and in organ transplants to prevent rejection.

Streptokinase is a thrombolytic medication and enzyme. As a medication, it is used to break down clots in some cases of myocardial infarction, pulmonary embolism, and arterial thromboembolism. 

Therefore, it is clear that streptokinase is a tissue plasminogen activator useful for the breakdown of clots in the blood.
