ab92773 was created by mutagenesis of the P9 serine residue (Ser338) on the reactive center loop to cysteine. This then provided a free thiol group for incorporation of N,N'-dimethyl-N-(acetyl)-N'-(7-nitrobenz-2-oxa-1,3-diazol-4-yl) (NBD), a fluorescent probe highly sensitive to changes in solvation and hydrophobic environment. The fluorescence emission of P9-NBD PAI1 is enhanced 6-7 fold upon insertion of the reactive center loop into beta-sheet A following complex formation with proteinases, formation of the latent species, or cleavage by elastase. The incorporated probe is excited at 480 nm and displays a broad emission spectrum with a peak centered 542 nm with a resultant blue-shift to 520 nm following reactive center loop insertion. The modified PAI1 is nearly as active as wt PAI-1 and is more resistant to the spontaneous latency reaction making this an excellent tool for monitoring reaction rates of PAI1. ab92773 has been utilized in a number of studies to determine the rates of loop insertion and SERPIN reaction mechanisms when reacted with various proteinases, inactivating antibodies and conformational changes imposed by the binding of vitronectin.

FunctionThis inhibitor acts as 'bait' for tissue plasminogen activator, urokinase, and protein C. Its rapid interaction with TPA may function as a major control point in the regulation of fibrinolysis.
Tissue specificityFound in plasma and platelets and in endothelial, hepatoma and fibrosarcoma cells.
Involvement in diseaseDefects in SERPINE1 are the cause of plasminogen activator inhibitor-1 deficiency (PAI-1D) [MIM:613329]. It is a hematologic disorder characterized by increased bleeding after trauma, injury, or surgery. Affected females have menorrhagia. The bleeding defect is due to increased fibrinolysis of fibrin blood clots due to deficiency of plasminogen activator inhibitor-1, which inhibits tissue and urinary activators of plasminogen. Note=High concentrations of SERPINE1 seem to contribute to the development of venous but not arterial occlusions.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the serpin family.
Post-translational modificationsInactivated by proteolytic attack of the urokinase-type (u-PA) and the tissue-type (TPA), cleaving the 369-Arg- -Met-370 bond.
