Technical Data
Antiplasmin, alpha2 (Alpha-2-AP, Alpha-2-plasmin Inhibitor, Alpha-2-PI, Serpin F2, SERPINF2, AAP, PLI)
Alpha-2 antiplasmin is a single-chain glycoprotein with a molecular weight of about 65000. The normal concentration in human plasma is 60ug/ml. Platelets contain significant amounts of the protein, which is released along with platelet factor 4, following thrombin stimulation. It can form 1:1 complexes with circulating plasmin. Alpha-2 antiplasmin is the most important inhibitor of plasmin-mediated fibrinolysis, but also capable of inactivating factor XIIa, kallikrein, factor XIa, thrombin and factor Xa. The importance of the alpha-2 antiplasmin as a regulator of the fibrinolytic system was detected by the discovery of a congenital deficiency.

Suitable for use in ELISA, Immunoprecipitation, Immunoelectrophoresis and Double Radial Immunodiffusion. Other applications not tested.

Alpha-2 antiplasmin isolated from pooled human plasma
Supplied as a lyophilized powder. Reconstitute in 1ml sterile ddH2O. Dilute further in PBS, pH 7.2.
Recognizes human alpha-2 antiplasmin. A single precipitin line is obtained in bidimensional electrophoresis, immunoelectrophoresis and double radial immunodiffusion (Ouchterlony) which shows a reaction of full identity with the purified immunogen. Does not crossreact with any other human plasma proteins.
Intended for research use only. Not for use in human, therapeutic, or diagnostic applications.
