Alternative method of subtyping the A subunit of coagulation factor XIII (FXIIIA).

An alternative isoelectric focusing method for the A subunit of coagulation factor XIII (FXIIIA) subtyping is described which employs three different carrier ampholytes, pH 4-6.5, pH 5-6 and pH 5-8 (2:2:1), and sample application at the anode. With this technique ten common subtypes, including a variant, were clearly and reliably identified in Japanese and… CONTINUE READING
