  • Description
  • Plasminogen Activator Inhibitor-1 (PAI-1, Serpin E1) is a member of the serpin family of serine protease inhibitors, and is the primary inhibitor of urokinase and tissue plasminogen activator (tPA). PAI-1 is expressed predominantly in adipose, liver and vascular tissues, and is also produced by certain tumor cells. Elevated levels of PAI-1 are associated with obesity, diabetes and cardiovascular disease, and increased production of PAI-1 is induced by various obesity related factors such as TNFα, glucose, insulin, and very-low-density lipoprotein. The obesity related elevation of PAI-1 levels along with the consequential deficiency in plasminogen activators can lead directly to increased risk of thrombosis and other coronary diseases. Accordingly, PAI-1 has been implicated as an important molecular link between obesity and coronary disease. PAI-1 can also specifically bind vitronectin (VTN) to form a stable active complex with an increased circulatory half life relative to free PAI-1. Recombinant human PAI-1 is a 42.7 kDa protein containing 379 amino acid residues.
  • Species
  • Human
  • Product Overview
  • Human SERPINE1 expressed in E.coli
  • Molecular Mass
  • 42.7 kDa
  • Size
  • CAT# CSC-CTK0361-10 (10 μg); CAT# CSC-CTK0361-50 (50 μg)
  • Expression System
  • E.coli
  • Purity
  • Greater than 95% as determined by SDS-PAGE and HPLC analysis.
  • Activity
  • Determined by its inhibitory effect against single chain tPA induced cleavage of a chromogenic substrate in Imidazole Buffer at 37°C. Half maximal inhibition against 1.0 μg/ml of single chain tPA was obtained at a concentration of 2.0 μg/ml.
  • Endotoxin Level
  • Less than 1 EU/μg.
  • Formulation
  • Sterile-filtered through a 0.2 micron filter and ly ophilized from 10 mM sodium phosphate (pH 7.5).
  • Reconstitution
  • Please centrifuge product before opening vial. The lyophilized protein should be reconstituted with distilled, sterile water to a concentration of 0.1-1.0 mg/ml. For further dilution, carrier protein (0.1% BSA or HSA) should be added to avoid loss of bioactivity.
  • Storage & Stability
  • The lyophilized protein, though stable at room temperature for up to 3 weeks, is best stored desiccated at -20°C. Reconstituted protein should be used immediately or stored long-term in undiluted working aliquots at -20°C. For long-term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA). Avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles.
