plasma fibronectin

plas·ma fi·bro·nec·tin

a circulating α2-glycoprotein that functions as an opsonin, mediating reticuloendothelial and macrophage clearance of fibrin microaggregates, collagen debris, and bacterial particulates, protecting microvascular perfusion and lymphatic drainage.

Homocysteine Binds to Human Plasma Fibronectin and Inhibits Its Interaction with Fibrin.
Hcy also binds the fibrinbinding domain of plasma fibronectin in vitro, inhibiting its ability to bind fibrin (24), and binds factor Va in vitro, making it resistant to inactivation by activated protein C (27).
Briefly, 60 [micro]l of rat plasma fibronectin standard (10-2000 ng/ml) or cell lysates were incubated with an equal volume of rabbit anti-rat fibronectin (R & D systems, Minneapolis, MN) diluted 1:2000 in wash buffer at 4[degrees]C overnight.
