TPA Antibody (Center)

Purified Rabbit Polyclonal Antibody (Pab)

  • WB - TPA Antibody (Center) AP6778C
    Western blot analysis of TPA Antibody (Center) (Cat. #AP6778c) in A2058 cell line lysates (35ug/lane). TPA (arrow) was detected using the purified Pab.
  • IHC-P - TPA Antibody (Center) AP6778C
    TPA Antibody (Center) (RB18787) IHC analysis in formalin fixed and paraffin embedded human testis tissue followed by peroxidase conjugation of the secondary antibody and DAB staining. This data demonstrates the use of the TPA Antibody (Center) for immunohistochemistry. Clinical relevance has not been evaluated.
  • FC - TPA Antibody (Center) AP6778C
    TPA Antibody (Center)? (Cat. #AP6778c) flow cytometric analysis of A2058 cells (right histogram) compared to a negative control cell (left histogram).FITC-conjugated goat-anti-rabbit secondary antibodies were used for the analysis.

Protein Information
Function Converts the abundant, but inactive, zymogen plasminogen to plasmin by hydrolyzing a single Arg-Val bond in plasminogen. By controlling plasmin-mediated proteolysis, it plays an important role in tissue remodeling and degradation, in cell migration and many other physiopathological events. Plays a direct role in facilitating neuronal migration.
Cellular Location Secreted, extracellular space.
Tissue Location Synthesized in numerous tissues (including tumors) and secreted into most extracellular body fluids, such as plasma, uterine fluid, saliva, gingival crevicular fluid, tears, seminal fluid, and milk

TPA is a tissue-type plasminogen activator, a secreted serine protease which converts the proenzyme plasminogen to plasmin, a fibrinolytic enzyme. Tissue-type plasminogen activator is synthesized as a single chain which is cleaved by plasmin to a two chain disulfide linked protein. This enzyme plays a role in cell migration and tissue remodeling. Increased enzymatic activity causes hyperfibrinolysis, which manifests as excessive bleeding; decreased activity leads to hypofibrinolysis which can result in thrombosis or embolism.
