  • Product overview

    Abcam’s Factor XIII Human in vitro ELISA (Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay) kit is designed for the quantitative measurement of factor XIII in plasma, serum, milk, urine, saliva, and cell culture supernatants.

    A Factor XIII specific antibody has been precoated onto 96-well plates and blocked. Standards or test samples are added to the wells and subsequently a Factor XIII specific biotinylated detection antibody is added and then followed by washing with wash buffer. Streptavidin-Peroxidase Complex is added and unbound conjugates are washed away with wash buffer. TMB is then used to visualize Streptavidin-Peroxidase enzymatic reaction. TMB is catalyzed by Streptavidin-Peroxidase to produce a blue color product that changes into yellow after adding acidic stop solution. The density of yellow coloration is directly proportional to the amount of Factor XIII captured in plate.

  • Research areas
  • Function
    Factor 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 disease
    Factor XIII subunit A deficiency
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the transglutaminase superfamily. Transglutaminase family.
  • Post-translational
    The activation peptide is released by thrombin.
  • Cellular localization
    Cytoplasm. Secreted. Secreted into the blood plasma. Cytoplasmic in most tissues, but also secreted in the blood plasma.
