  • Product overview

    Abcam’s Total PAI1 ELISA (Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay) kit is designed for is for the quantitative determination of active plasminogen activator inhibitor type 1 in mouse plasma. 

    Mouse PAI1 present in plasma reacts with the capture antibody coated and dried on a microtiter plate. Free, latent and complexed PAI1 will bind to the plate. Any unbound PAI1 is washed away and an anti-PAI1 primary antibody is added. Excess primary antibody is washed away and bound antibody, which is proportional to the total PAI1 present in the samples, is then reacted with the secondary antibody. Following an additional washing step, TMB is then used for color development at 450nm. The amount of color development is directly proportional to the concentration of total PAI1 in the sample.

  • Research areas

  • Function

    Serine protease inhibitor. This inhibitor acts as 'bait' for tissue plasminogen activator, urokinase, protein C and matriptase-3/TMPRSS7. Its rapid interaction with PLAT may function as a major control point in the regulation of fibrinolysis.
  • Tissue specificity

    Found in plasma and platelets and in endothelial, hepatoma and fibrosarcoma cells.
  • Involvement in disease

    Defects 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 similarities

    Belongs to the serpin family.
  • Post-translational

    Inactivated by proteolytic attack of the urokinase-type (u-PA) and the tissue-type (TPA), cleaving the 369-Arg-
    -Met-370 bond.
