Recombinant murine-activated protein C is neuroprotective in a murine ischemic stroke model.


Recombinant mouse protein C was cloned, expressed, purified, and activated by Protac or thrombin. The anticoagulant activities of mouse and human activated protein C (APC) were compared using mouse and human plasma and the neuroprotective properties of murine APC were studied in an ischemic stroke model. Both human APC and mouse APC prolonged the activated… (More)
