ab94198 is a 293T cell transfected lysate in which Human HRG has been transiently over-expressed using a pCMV-HRG plasmid. The lysate is provided in 1X Sample Buffer. Note: For more details about how the transfected lysate was prepared view preparation notes
HRG (histidine-rich glycoprotein) contains two cystatin-like domains and is located in plasma and platelets. The physiological function is not yet known. It binds heme, dyes and divalent metal ions. It can inhibit rosette formation and interacts with heparin, thrombospondin, and the lysine-binding site of plasminogen. A potential prothrombotic effect of HRG is indicated by the inhibition of fibrinolysis and the reduction of inhibition of coagulation. Mutations in HRG lead to thrombophilia due to abnormal histidine-rich glycoprotein levels.
