|Target/Specificity||Sheep anti-Human plasminogen antibody recognizes human plasminogen, a ~90 kDa single-chain glycoprotein and inactive precursor (zymogen) of plasmin, secreted by the liver and present in the blood and majority of extravascular body fluids.Plasminogen is the central component in the fibrinolytic system, and is converted into active plasmin through cleavage by the endogenous activators urokinase (u-PA) and tissue plasminogen activator (t-PA), in the presence of fibrin. The level of plasminogen is maintained in the plasma at around 200mg/L, with an increase being associated with hypothyroidism, obesity and pregnancy, and deficiencies with many disorders including thrombosis, liver disease, sepsis and hyperthyroidism.Sheep anti-Human plasminogen antibody has not been cross adsorbed and may cross react with plasminogen from other species.|
