Description

  • Product name

    Native rabbit Thrombomodulin protein
    See all Thrombomodulin proteins and peptides
  • Biological activity

    Specific activity: 500-1800 units/mg.
    Specific activity is determined by titration of Thrombomodulin in a Human protein C activation assay. One unit of activity is the amount of Thrombomodulin required to maximize the activation of human protein C by one NIH unit of thrombin.

  • Function

    Thrombomodulin is a specific endothelial cell receptor that forms a 1:1 stoichiometric complex with thrombin. This complex is responsible for the conversion of protein C to the activated protein C (protein Ca). Once evolved, protein Ca scissions the activated cofactors of the coagulation mechanism, factor Va and factor VIIIa, and thereby reduces the amount of thrombin generated.
  • Tissue specificity

    Endothelial cells are unique in synthesizing thrombomodulin.
  • Involvement in disease

    Defects in THBD are the cause of thrombophilia due to thrombomodulin defect (THR-THBD) [MIM:188040]. A hemostatic disorder characterized by a tendency to thrombosis.
    Defects in THBD are a cause of susceptibility to hemolytic uremic syndrome atypical type 6 (AHUS6) [MIM:612926]. An atypical form of hemolytic uremic syndrome. It is a complex genetic disease characterized by microangiopathic hemolytic anemia, thrombocytopenia, renal failure and absence of episodes of enterocolitis and diarrhea. In contrast to typical hemolytic uremic syndrome, atypical forms have a poorer prognosis, with higher death rates and frequent progression to end-stage renal disease. Note=Susceptibility to the development of atypical hemolytic uremic syndrome can be conferred by mutations in various components of or regulatory factors in the complement cascade system. Other genes may play a role in modifying the phenotype.
