MA5-17642 targets Platelet Factor 4 in ELISA and WB applications and shows reactivity with Human samples.
The MA5-17642 immunogen is human Factor IV purified from the supernatant of thrombin activated platelets.
Platelet factor-4 is a 70-amino acid protein that is released from the alpha-granules of activated platelets and binds with high affinity to heparin. Its major physiologic role appears to be neutralization of heparin-like molecules on the endothelial surface of blood vessels, thereby inhibiting local antithrombin III activity and promoting coagulation. As a strong chemoattractant for neutrophils and fibroblasts, PF4 probably has a role in inflammation and wound repair (Eisman et al., 1990 [PubMed 1695112]).
