  • Product overview

    Abcam’s uPA Total (URK) in vitro ELISA (Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay) kit is designed for the quantitative measurement of total urokinase plasminogen activator antigen in mouse plasma.


    Mouse uPA will bind to the capture antibody coated on the microtiter plate. Free and complexed enzyme will react with the capture antibody on the plate. After appropriate washing steps, polyclonal anti-murine uPA primary antibody binds to the captured enzyme. Excess antibody is washed away and bound polyclonal antibody is then bound by the secondary antibody conjugated to horseradish peroxidase. TMB substrate is used for color development at 450nm. A standard calibration curve is prepared along with the samples to be measured using dilutions of uPA.

  • Research areas

  • Relevance

    Urokinase type plasminogen activator (uPA) is secreted from cells as a precursor which is activated to the two chain form consisting of an A and B chain. The active high MW form is further processed by removal of an amino terminal fragment to an active low MW form (35 kDa). uPA is a serine protease that activates plasminogen toplasmin. High levels of uPA and plasminogen activator inhibitor type 1 (PAI 1) in breast cancer tissue extracts have been associated with rapid disease progression. The malignant phenotype of prostatic tumor cells correlates with the expression of both uPA and its cell membrane receptor (uPAR).
