  • Product overview

    Abcam’s Protein C Human in vitro competitive ELISA (Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay) kit is designed for the quantitative measurement of Protein C in plasma and serum.

    A Protein C specific antibody has been precoated onto 96-well plates and blocked. Standards or test samples are added to the wells and subsequently biotinylated Protein C 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 inversely proportional to the amount of Protein C captured in plate.

  • Research areas

  • Function

    Protein C is a vitamin K-dependent serine protease that regulates blood coagulation by inactivating factors Va and VIIIa in the presence of calcium ions and phospholipids.
  • Tissue specificity

    Plasma; synthesized in the liver.
  • Involvement in disease

    Defects in PROC are the cause of thrombophilia due to protein C deficiency, autosomal dominant (THPH3) [MIM:176860]. A hemostatic disorder characterized by impaired regulation of blood coagulation and a tendency to recurrent venous thrombosis. However, many adults with heterozygous disease may be asymptomatic. Individuals with decreased amounts of protein C are classically referred to as having type I protein C deficiency and those with normal amounts of a functionally defective protein as having type II deficiency.
    Defects in PROC are the cause of thrombophilia due to protein C deficiency, autosomal recessive (THPH4) [MIM:612304]. A hemostatic disorder characterized by impaired regulation of blood coagulation and a tendency to recurrent venous thrombosis. It results in a thrombotic condition that can manifest as a severe neonatal disorder or as a milder disorder with late-onset thrombophilia. The severe form leads to neonatal death through massive neonatal venous thrombosis. Often associated with ecchymotic skin lesions which can turn necrotic called purpura fulminans, this disorder is very rare.
  • Sequence similarities

    Belongs to the peptidase S1 family.
    Contains 2 EGF-like domains.
    Contains 1 Gla (gamma-carboxy-glutamate) domain.
    Contains 1 peptidase S1 domain.
  • Post-translational
    modifications

    The vitamin K-dependent, enzymatic carboxylation of some Glu residues allows the modified protein to bind calcium.
    N- and O-glycosylated. Partial (70%) N-glycosylation of Asn-371 with an atypical N-X-C site produces a higher molecular weight form referred to as alpha. The lower molecular weight form, not N-glycosylated at Asn-371, is beta. O-glycosylated with core 1 or possibly core 8 glycans.
    The iron and 2-oxoglutarate dependent 3-hydroxylation of aspartate and asparagine is (R) stereospecific within EGF domains.
    May be phosphorylated on a Ser or Thr in a region (AA 25-30) of the propeptide.

Customer reviews and Q&As

Answer

Unfortunately I will not be able to send you a sample kit for testing purpose because this is against the company guidelines. All our product are vigorously tested in compatible samples and are fully guaranteed so if journal has any problem we can provide certificate of compliance which explain the kit will do what the datasheet say.

Once again I am sorry we will not be able to provide you free samples for testing. I can however provide Abtrial offer code if the kits are going to be used in samples or species not listed on the datasheet. By participating in our 100% Abtrial discount programme - a free product can be claimed in exchange of review for this antibody. Please contact me for code if you accept our offer. Please note that purchase for the first kit is necessary.
