Prothrombin is a carbohydrate-protein compound which is transformed to thrombin using the enzyme prothrombinase, thrombin is then responsible for transforming fibrinogen into fibrin. Platelets and fibrin can cause the formation clots, a process known as coagulation and this is important during bleeding. A deficiency in prothrombin which is known as hypoprothrombinemia is defined by its prolonged tendency to bleeding.
Human prothrombin ELISA kit is useful for sceening in-vitro quantitative concentrations of IgG, IgA and IgM autoantibodies to prothrombin in human serum or plasma. This assay has a minimum analytical sensitivity limit of 1.0 U/ml.
The minimum detection sensitivity level of human prothrombin IgM, IgG and IgA autoantibodies using this human prothrombin ELISA kit was 1.0 U/ml. The dynamic assay range for this kit is 6.3 – 100.0 U/ml.
