IHC-Fr Use at an assay dependent concentration.


  • FunctionFactor XIII is activated by thrombin and calcium ion to a transglutaminase that catalyzes the formation of gamma-glutamyl-epsilon-lysine cross-links between fibrin chains, thus stabilizing the fibrin clot. Also cross-link alpha-2-plasmin inhibitor, or fibronectin, to the alpha chains of fibrin.
  • Involvement in diseaseDefects in F13A1 are the cause of factor XIII subunit A deficiency (FA13AD) [MIM:613225]. FA13AD is an autosomal recessive disorder characterized by a life-long bleeding tendency, impaired wound healing and spontaneous abortion in affected women.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the transglutaminase superfamily. Transglutaminase family.
  • Post-translational
    The activation peptide is released by thrombin.
  • Cellular localizationCytoplasm. Secreted. Secreted into the blood plasma. Cytoplasmic in most tissues, but also secreted in the blood plasma.

  • ab4057 staining formalin fixed paraffin-embedded human bowel tumour tissue sections.  The sample was subjected to heat mediated antigen retrieval in citrate buffer (pH 6.0) and blocked with 10% srum for 1 hour at 24°C, prior to incubation with the primary antibody (diluted 1/100 in milk) for 12 hours at 4°C.  A biotinylated goat anti-rabbit antibody was used as the secondary.

Thank you for your enquiry. Factor XIIIa is a coagulation protein present in the plasma. Staining is cytoplasmic. It should stain the endothelial cells of the blood vessels. It appears that the datasheet states that the cellular localization is c...
