Factor XII (Hageman Factor) BioAssay ELISA Kit (Antibodies only)

£1,113.00 1 Kit

Factor XII (F.XII, also called Hageman Factor) is a glycoprotein that circulates at levels of 40ug/ml in plasma. Activation of F.XII occurs as a consequence of binding to a negatively charged surface or from the proteolysis by kallikrein to produce alphaXIIa which in turn can
activate F.XI to F.XIa. alpha-XIIa can be further cleaved by kallikrein to form alphaXIIa which can feed back to activate more prekallikrein to kallikrein and can also activate F.VII and the classical complement pathway. The natural inhibitors of F.XIIa in plasma are, in order of importance, C1-Inhibitor, alpha 2 Antiplasmin and alpha 2 Macroglobulin.

F.XII in plasma and other fluids can be measured by sandwich-style immunoassay. The F.XII is captured onto a microtiter plate coated with affinity purified goat anti-F.XII. The plate is washed to remove unbound protein and the the captured F.XII is then detected with the addition of goat anti-F.XII IgG conjugated to HRP. The plate is again washed and bound antibody conjugate activity is expressed by incubation with substrate, ortho-phenylene diamine (OPD) for a limited time. The color generated is proportional to the concentration of F.XII initially present in the sample.
