  • Product overview

    Abcam’s Plasminogen Rat ELISA Kit is a two-site enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) for the quantitative measurement of Plasminogen levels in rat serum and plasma. 

     

    In this assay the Plasminogen present in samples reacts with the anti-Plasminogen antibodies which have been adsorbed to the surface of polystyrene microtitre wells. After the removal of unbound proteins by washing, anti-Plasminogen antibodies conjugated with horseradish peroxidase (HRP), are added. These enzyme-labeled antibodies form complexes with the previously bound Plasminogen. Following another washing step, the enzyme bound to the immunosorbent is assayed by the addition of a chromo­genic substrate, 3,3’,5,5’-tetramethylbenzidine (TMB). The quantity of bound enzyme varies directly with the concentration of  Plasminogen in the sample tested; thus, the absorbance, at 450 nm, is a measure of the concentration of Plasminogen in the test sample. The quantity of Plasminogen in the test sample can be interpolated from the standard curve constructed from the standards, and corrected for sample dilution.

  • Research areas
  • Function
    Plasmin dissolves the fibrin of blood clots and acts as a proteolytic factor in a variety of other processes including embryonic development, tissue remodeling, tumor invasion, and inflammation. In ovulation, weakens the walls of the Graafian follicle. It activates the urokinase-type plasminogen activator, collagenases and several complement zymogens, such as C1 and C5. Cleavage of fibronectin and laminin leads to cell detachment and apoptosis. Also cleaves fibrin, thrombospondin and von Willebrand factor. Its role in tissue remodeling and tumor invasion may be modulated by CSPG4. Binds to cells.
    Angiostatin is an angiogenesis inhibitor that blocks neovascularization and growth of experimental primary and metastatic tumors in vivo.
  • Tissue specificity
    Present in plasma and many other extracellular fluids. It is synthesized in the liver.
  • Involvement in disease
    Defects in PLG are the cause of plasminogen deficiency (PLGD) [MIM:217090]. PLGD is characterized by decreased serum plasminogen activity. Two forms of the disorder are distinguished: type 1 deficiency is additionally characterized by decreased plasminogen antigen levels and clinical symptoms, whereas type 2 deficiency, also known as dysplasminogenemia, is characterized by normal, or slightly reduced antigen levels, and absence of clinical manifestations. Plasminogen deficiency type 1 results in markedly impaired extracellular fibrinolysis and chronic mucosal pseudomembranous lesions due to subepithelial fibrin deposition and inflammation. The most common clinical manifestation of type 1 deficiency is ligneous conjunctivitis in which pseudomembranes formation on the palpebral surfaces of the eye progresses to white, yellow-white, or red thick masses with a wood-like consistency that replace the normal mucosa.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the peptidase S1 family. Plasminogen subfamily.
    Contains 5 kringle domains.
    Contains 1 PAN domain.
    Contains 1 peptidase S1 domain.
  • Domain
    Kringle domains mediate interaction with CSPG4.
  • Post-translational
    modifications
    N-linked glycan contains N-acetyllactosamine and sialic acid. O-linked glycans consist of Gal-GalNAc disaccharide modified with up to 2 sialic acid residues (microheterogeneity).
    In the presence of the inhibitor, the activation involves only cleavage after Arg-580, yielding two chains held together by two disulfide bonds. In the absence of the inhibitor, the activation involves additionally the removal of the activation peptide.
  • Cellular localization
    Secreted. Locates to the cell surface where it is proteolytically cleaved to produce the active plasmin. Interaction with HRG tethers it to the cell surface.
