Thrombomodulin (TM, CD141, THBD) is an endothelial cell expressed transmembrane glycoprotein that can form a complex with the coagulation factor, Thrombin. The Thrombomodulin/Thrombin complex converts protein C to its activated form, protein Ca, which in turn proteolytically cleaves and deactivates factor Va and factor VIIIa, two essential components of the coagulation mechanism. This inactivation reduces the generation of additional thrombin and thereby effectively prevents continued coagulation. Reduced levels of Thrombomodulin can correlate with the pathogenesis of certain cardiovascular diseases, such as atherosclerosis and thrombosis. However, the serum levels of the truncated circulating form of Thrombomodulin are typically elevated during inflammation and in the presence of various inflammatory related diseases. Recombinant soluble Thrombomodulin is a 491 amino acid glycoprotein containing the extracellular domain of Thrombomodulin.
Human THBD expressed in HEK293 cells
CAT# CSC-CTK0424-10 (10 μg); CAT# CSC-CTK0424-50 (50 μg)
Greater than 98% as determined by HPLC and SDS-PAGE analysis.
Measured by its ability to activate protein C induced cleavage of the chromogenic substrate, BOC-Asp-Pro Arg-AMC in the presence of thrombin. The specific activity is greater than 500 pmoles/min/ug.
Less than 1 EU/μg.
Lyophilized from a sterile-filtered protein solution in 10 mM sodium phosphate (pH 7.5).
Please centrifuge product briefly before opening vial. The lyophilized protein should be reconstituted in sterile, ultra-pure water to a concentration of 0.1 - 1.0 mg/ml. This solution can then be diluted into other aqueous buffers and stored at -20°C for future use.
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. Avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles.
