  • 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.

  • Immunohistochemical analysis of formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded Human placenta tissue, staining Factor XIIIa with ab1834.
  • Overlay histogram showing A549 cells stained with ab16956 (red line). The cells were fixed with 80% methanol (5 min) and then permeabilized with 0.1% PBS-Tween for 20 min. The cells were then incubated in 1x PBS / 10% normal goat serum / 0.3M glycine to block non-specific protein-protein interactions followed by the antibody (ab16956, 1µg/1x106 cells) for 30 min at 22ºC. The secondary antibody used was DyLight® 488 goat anti-mouse IgG (H+L) (ab96879) at 1/500 dilution for 30 min at 22ºC. Isotype control antibody (black line) was mouse IgG1 [ICIGG1] (ab91353, 2µg/1x106 cells) used under the same conditions. Acquisition of >5,000 events was performed.

Thank you for your enquiry. You do not need any pretreatment when staining with this particular antibody. It just works fine. However, if your tissue is over fixed, you need enzymatic treatment.

Recombinant protein was purified using HPLC.

The concentration is 100 ug/ml.
