Evaluation of fibrinolytic capacity by a combined assay system for tissue-type plasminogen activator antigen and function using monoclonal anti-tissue-type plasminogen activator antibodies.

Abstract

An assay system has been developed that allows consecutive quantification of tissue-type plasminogen activator (t-PA) activity and t-PA antigen in the same plasma sample. In the first step t-PA is bound to an immobilized IgM monoclonal anti-t-PA antibody and functional activity of bound t-PA is quantified by its plasminogen-activating activity. In the… (More)
