PLAUR, Monocyte Activation Antigen Mo3, U-PAR, UPAR, U-Plasminogen Activator Receptor Form 2, CD87 Antigen , CD87, URKR, MO3.
PLAUR is one of 2 activators which convert the extracellular zymogen plasminogen to plasmin, a serine protease involved in a various normal and pathological processes that require cell migration and/or tissue destruction. PLAUR protein is synthesized and released from cells as a single-chain proenzyme with narrow enzymatic activity and is converted to an active two-chain disulfide-linked active enzyme by plasmin and other specific proteinases.
PLAUR produced in Sf9 Baculovirus cells is a single, glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 291 amino acids (23-305 a.a.) and having a molecular mass of 32.5kDa (Molecular size on SDS-PAGE will appear at approximately 40-57 kDa).
PLAUR is fused to a 8 amino acid His-tag at C-terminus & purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA).
