Description

Immunogen

Factor IX from pooled normal human plasma.

General description

Factor IX (FIX) is a 55 kDa, single chain vitamin K-dependent plasma zymogen which plays a key role in the intrinsic and extrinsic blood coagulation systems. In mature stage of FIX, it comprises of four distinct domains: the N-terminal Gla-domain, the EGF-like domain, the activating peptide (AP) domain and the C-terminal serine protease domain. Hereditary deficiencies or dysfunctions of factor IX cause hemophilia B or "Christmas Disease" (the surname of the first family described). In haemophilia B, FIX showed impaired coagulation and increased tendency to bleed as a reason of mutation in the X chromosome linked FIX gene. Factor IX is synthesized in liver parenchymal cells and requires a post-translational vitamin K-dependent modification in order to become a mature plasma zymogen. When patients lack vitamin-K or take oral anticoagulants that interfere with the metabolism of vitamin-K, a hypocoagulable or antithrombotic state is induced.




Physical form

Solution in 10 mM HEPES, pH 7.4, with 140 mM sodium chloride and 0.05% sodium azide.

Specificity

Monoclonal Anti-Factor IX, a divalent cation-independent antibody, recognizes factor IX when used on immunoblots of non-denatured, non-reduced human plasma. It is also useful as paired labeled antibody in sandwich-type immunoassays with Monoclonal anti-Factor IX, clone HIX-5 (Product No. F1020).

This antibody may be used for purification of Factor IX and preparation of Factor IX depleted human plasma.

Application

Monoclonal Anti-Factor IX antibody produced in mouse is suitable for ELISA-based assay in detection of FIX Inhibitors and it has been used as a positive control in ELISA. It is also suitable for western blot at a concentration of 2-4μg/mL.

Biochem/physiol Actions

FIX plays a key role in the intrinsic and extrinsic blood coagulation systems. It is synthesized in liver and later upon activation in plasma it gets converted into a serine protease. In second step, FIX undergoes series of complex post-translation modifications such as γ-carboxylation of 12 N-terminal glutamic acid residues, N- and O-linked glycosylation, phosphorylation, β-hydroxylation, sulfation, disulfide bond formation etc. It is secreted into the plasma after completion of post-translation modifications.
