Protein C Inhibitor
Protein C Inhibitor (PCI, SERPINA5) is a serine protease inhibitor (serpin) which limits the expression of protein C (an anticoagulant). An N-terminal fragment of PCI is a possible serum biomarker for prostate cancer.
TECHNOZYM® Protein C Inhibitor Actibind ELISA Kit allows the determination of active Protein C Inhibitor antigen. The assay is based on the immobilization of functionally active urokinase to plates by means of a monoclonal antibody. Protein C Inhibitor contained in the test sample binds to u-PA and is then quantified using a peroxidase-labeled monoclonal anti-Protein C Inhibitor antibody.
