The Quantikine Human TFPI Immunoassay is a 3.5 hour solid-phase ELISA designed to measure human TFPI in cell culture supernates, plasma, and urine. It contains NS0-expressed recombinant human TFPI and has been shown to accurately quantitate the recombinant factor. Results obtained using natural human TFPI showed linear curves that were parallel to the standard curves obtained using the Quant...ikine kit standards. These results indicate that this kit can be used to determine relative mass values for naturally occurring human TFPI.
Natural and recombinant human TFPI. This kit recognizes predominantly free TFPI and a very small percentage of the LDL- and HDL-bound TFPI.
Tissue Factor Pathway Inhibitor (TFPI) is a key regulator of the extrinsic coagulation pathway. It inhibits coagulation through the formation of a quaternary complex with Coagulation Factor X, Coagulation Factor III/Tissue Factor, and Coagulation Factor VII, thereby preventing the activation of Factor X. TFPI also exhibits anti-angiogenic and anti-metastatic effects. It is produced by vascular endothelial cells and circulates as a free molecule, on platelet surfaces, and in complex with LDL and HDL particles. Abnormal TFPI concentrations in the circulation are associated with thrombosis, disseminated intravascular coagulation, and sepsis. TFPI can enhance anti-thrombotic treatment in sepsis, inflammatory diseases, and cardiovascular diseases.
