Native Bovine glu-Plasminogen

Cat.No.: PLG-268B
Description: Plasminogen is a single chain glycoprotein zymogen which is synthesized in the liver and circulates in plasma at a concentration of approximately 2.4 μM. The plasminogen molecule contains 790 amino acids, 24 disulfide bridges, no free sulfhydryls and 5 regions of internal sequence homology, known as kringles, between Lys77 and Arg560. These five triple-looped, three disulfide bridged, kringle regions are homologous to the kringle domains in t-PA, u-PA and prothrombin. Plasminogen contains one high affinity (Kd=9x10-6M) and four low affinity (Kd=5x10-3M) lysine binding sites. The high affinity binding site resides within the first kringle region of plasminogen. The interaction of plasminogen with fibrin and α2-antiplasmin is mediated by these lysine binding sites. Native glu-plasminogen (Mr=88,000) is readily converted to Lys-77-plasminogen (Mr=83,000) by plasmin hydrolysis of the Lys76-Lys77 peptide bond. Elastase catalyzed cleavage of the Val441-Val442 peptide bond of glu-plasminogen yields a functionally active zymogen termed Val-442 plasminogen or mini-plasminogen.
