Rabbit tPA ELISA Kit
Rabbit tPA ELISA Kit is intended for the quantitative determination of active tissue plasminogen activator (tPA) in rabbit plasma and other biological fluids. Measures tissue plasminogen activator in rabbit plasma. The assay measures active tPA in the 0.05-20ng/ml range and the standard curve is linear throughout the entire range. tPA is a serine protease that converts plasminogen to plasmin in the blood fibrinolytic system. It also plays an important role in the nervous system, including the processes of neuronal migration, neurite outgrowth, and neuronal plasticity. tPA has been suggested to have a role in several neuropathological conditions such as cerebral ischemia, seizures, and demyelinating diseases. The sensitive quantitative measurement of functionally active rabbit tPA in plasma and other biological fluid samples is easily performed with this 96 well strip format ELISA kit. In-house testing of pooled normal rabbit plasma in citrate indicates a tPA concentration of 0.5-1 ng/ml. The assay measures active tPA in the 0.05-20 ng/ml range.
