|Other Names||Thrombomodulin, TM, Fetomodulin, CD141, THBD, THRM|
|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP6779c was selected from the Center region of human Thrombomodulin. A 10 to 100 fold molar excess to antibody is recommended. Precise conditions should be optimized for a particular assay.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C.|
|Precautions||This product is for research use only. Not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|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.|
|Cellular Location||Membrane; Single-pass type I membrane protein|
|Tissue Location||Endothelial cells are unique in synthesizing thrombomodulin|

Thrombomodulin is an endothelial-specific type I membrane receptor that binds thrombin. This binding results in the activation of protein C, which degrades clotting factors Va and VIIIa and reduces the amount of thrombin generated.
