|Title:||Role of A alpha chain of fibrinogen in coagulation and platelet interaction investigated with a monoclonal antibody.||Austin Authors:||Thurlow, P J;Connellan, J M;Kenneally, D A||Affiliation:||Department of Haematology, Austin Hospital, Heidelberg, Victoria, Australia||Issue Date:||15-Aug-1987||Publication information:||Thrombosis Research; 47(4): 427-39||Abstract:||A murine monoclonal antibody (anti-C2G7), reactive with fibrinogen, was used to analyse the structure and function of the fibrinogen epitope C2G7. Anti-C2G7 was found to be reactive with fibrinogen but not with fibronectin, Factor VIII-von Willebrand Factor (FVIII-vWF), beta-thromboglobulin (beta TG), platelet factor 4 (PF4) nor with a range of normal cells and cell lines. Biochemical and plasmin digestion studies of fibrinogen revealed that C2G7 is present on the carboxy-terminal end of the alpha chain on a fragment with a Mr approximately 30-40 K. Functional studies, on the role of fibrinogen in coagulation and platelet function, demonstrated the importance of C2G7 (or a closely associated region) for thrombin-associated fibrin polymerization and collagen induced fibrinogen binding to platelets.||Gov't Doc #:||3310325||URI:||http://ahro.austin.org.au/austinjspui/handle/1/12963||URL:||https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/3310325||Type:||Journal Article||Subjects:||Animals
