Murine Fibrinogen Paired Antibody Set
Affinity’s Murine Fibrinogen Paired Antibody Set consists of matched capture and detecting antibodies only that have been titrated and optimized for use in sandwich style ELISA assays. The product as provided contains sufficient capture and detecting antibodies for four full 96-well microplates and contains a detailed protocol sheet containing directions for use, recipes for solutions and sources for additional materials required. This Murine Fibrinogen Paired Antibody Set is intended to facilitate the end user in establishing an “in-house” immunoassay for research purposes only and must not be used for diagnostic applications. Assay validation is the responsibility of the end user.

Description of Fibrinogen
Most of the fibrinogen in the circulation consists of 2 copies of each chain (Aα2, Bβ2, γA2), but in normal plasma approximately 10% of the fibrinogen molecules contain one γA chain and one variant γ chain (termed γ′), in which the c-terminal AGDV residues are replaced with the amino acid sequence VRPEHPAETEYDSLYPEDDL. This variant fibrinogen is commonly referred to as fibrinogen gamma prime (γA/γ′) but has also been called fibrinogen 2 or peak 2 fibrinogen because it elutes separately from fibrinogen 1 (γA2) by ion exchange chromatography. Residues 414-427 of the γ′ chain of fibrin gamma prime (contain a high-affinity binding site for exosite II of thrombin, which allows the active site of bound thrombin to remain available to interact with substrates while demonstrating resistance to heparin mediated inhibition by antithrombin1-4.
