Clone Host Grade Applications
Monoclonal Mouse Affinity Purified E B IH
Urokinase plasminogen activator (uPA) is a serine protease. It converts the abundant proenzyme plasminogen to active plasmin and plays a key role in cancer invasion and a variety of tissue remodelling processes such as wound healing, mammary gland involution and placental development(1-3). Elevated levels of uPA are associated with poor prognosis in many types of cancer (2-5).
Catalog #U1820-14

ImmunogenNative human uPA
SpecificityRecognizes the A-chain of human uPA. Binds single and two-chain uPA, uPA/PAI-1 complex and uPA/uPAR complex. A reaction isseen with the amino terminal fragment (ATF) but not with LMW uPA. It inhibits the enzymatic activity of uPA in the fibrin plate assay. No reaction with human tissue plasminogen activator (tPA) or with any other human plasma proteins.
