Goat anti human PAI-1 antibody
recognizes human Plasminogen activator inhibitor 1 (PAI-1), also known as Serpin E1. PAI-1 is a 402 amino acid }45kDa serine protease inhibitor epitope within the internal region of human Serpin E1. PAI-1 (Serpin E1) is a 45kD serine protease inhibitor and the principle inhibitor of tissue plasminogen activator (tPA) and urokinase (uPA)
PAI-1 is present in plasma, platelets and endothelial cells, is expressed at increased levels in various disease states (Kruithof et al. 1988
), and has been linked to an increased occurrence of thrombosis in obesity and coronary artery disease (Oseroff et al. 1989
). Defects in PAI-1 are characterized by abnormal bleeding (Takahashi et al. 1996
Goat anti human PAI-1 antibody has been used successfully for the detection of PAI-1 in human tissues by immunohistochemistry, western blotting and ELISA.

Applications of PAI-1 antibody
|Immunohistology - Paraffin 1
- 1 This antibody requires heat-mediated antigen retrieval prior to staining paraffin sections. Citrate buffer pH6.0 is recommended for this purpose.
Where this antibody has not been tested for use in a particular technique this does not necessarily exclude its use in such procedures. It is recommended that the user titrates the antibody for use in their own system using appropriate negative/positive controls.
- Histology Positive Control Tissue
- Human Placenta
- Western Blotting
- Goat anti human PAI-1 detects a band of approximately 45kDa in human duodenum, liver and lung lysates. A minimum incubation time of 1 hour is recommended with this antibody.
