Factor i

(Science: haematology) a protein which is synthesised by the liver.

fibrinogen is converted to fibrin, in the formation of a blood clot, via the enzymatic action of thrombin. A fibrinogen assay measures the concentration of fibrinogen in the blood and may be used to evaluate abnormal blood clotting.

a lack of fibrinogen may be congenital or acquired. A condition known as DIC results in the excessive utilisation and depletion of fibrinogen.

Synonym: fibrinogen.

mRNA vs. cell reporter assay

... different way: Maybe the reporter system provides us with more information than RT-PCR/Western blot, because it proves that the transcription factor is actually active too, not just present? I thought it is enough to detect a significant increase in the expression by Western blot and we could ...

mRNA vs. cell reporter assay

Hi, I have a GFP reporter cell line that drives GFP expression upon activation of a transcription factor. In theory, I can study transcription factor activation via the GFP signal, or by measuring the mRNA of the transcription factor. I wonder what are the pros and cons ...
