MA5-17629 targets Prothrombin in ELISA and WB applications and shows reactivity with Human samples.
The MA5-17629 immunogen is human Prothrombin (CaPro-20) purified from plasma.
Prothrombin or Coagulation factor II, is proteolytically cleaved to form thrombin in the first step of the coagulation cascade which ultimately results in the stemming of blood loss. F2 also plays a role in maintaining vascular integrity during development and postnatal life. Mutations in F2 leads to various forms of thrombosis and dysprothrombinemia.
