Technical Data
F4203-06Q
FGA, NT (Fibrinogen alpha Chain, Fibrinopeptide A)
Description:
FGA is the alpha component of fibrinogen, a blood-borne glycoprotein comprised of three pairs of nonidentical polypeptide chains. Following vascular injury, fibrinogen is cleaved by thrombin to form fibrin which is the most abundant component of blood clots. In addition, various cleavage products of fibrinogen and fibrin regulate cell adhesion and spreading, display vasoconstrictor and chemotactic activities, and are mitogens for several cell types.

Applications:
Suitable for use in ELISA, Immunohistochemistry, Immunofluorescence and Western Blot. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilution:
ELISA: 1:1000
Western Blot: 1:50-1:100
Immunohistochemistry: 1:50-1:100
Immunofluorescence: 1:10-1:50
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.
