Relevance: Thrombin-like snake venom serine protease that acts as an anticoagulant. It cleaves fibrinogen (FGA) to split off the A-fibrinopeptides (A, AY and AP), but not the B-fibrinopeptide. The resulting fibrin polymers are imperfectly formed and much smaller in size (1 to 2 um long) than the fibrin polymers produced by the action of thrombin. These ancrod-induced microthrombi are friable, unstable, urea-soluble and have significantly degraded alpha chains. They do not cross-link to form thrombi. They are markedly susceptible to digestion by plasmin and are rapidly roved from circulation by either reticuloendothelial phagocytosis or normal fibrinolysis, or both. Anticoagulation through the roval of fibrinogen from the blood is rapid, occurring within hours following its administration. It does not activate plasminogen and does not degrade preformed, fully cross-linked thrombin fibrin. It also reduces the level of plasminogen activator inhibitor (PAI) and may stimulate the release of tissue plasminogen activator (PLAT) from the endothelium. The profibrinolytic effect of these 2 actions appears to be limited to local microthrombus degradation.

Reference: Amino acid sequence determination of ancrod, the thrombin-like alpha-fibrinogenase from the venom of Akistrodon rhodostoma.Burkhart W., Simth G.F.H., Su J.-L., Parikh I., Levine H. IIIFEBS Lett. 297:297-301(1992)

Storage: The shelf life is related to many factors, storage state, buffer ingredients, storage temperature and the stability of the protein itself. Generally, the shelf life of liquid form is 6 months at -20?/-80?. The shelf life of lyophilized form is 12 months at -20?/-80?.

Notes: Repeated freezing and thawing is not recommended. Store working aliquots at 4? for up to one week.

Function: Thiol protease. Acts synergistically with RgpB to catalyze the maturation of fimbrial subunits, such as FimA (By similarity). Its proteolytic activity is a major factor in both periodontal tissue destruction and in evasion of host defense mechanisms (Probable).

Involvement in disease:

Subcellular Location: Secreted

Protein Families: Peptidase C25 family

Tissue Specificity:


Form: Liquid or Lyophilized powder

Buffer: If the delivery form is liquid, the default storage buffer is Tris/PBS-based buffer, 5%-50% glycerol. If the delivery form is lyophilized powder, the buffer before lyophilization is Tris/PBS-based buffer, 6% Trehalose, pH 8.0.

Reconstitution: We recommend that this vial be briefly centrifuged prior to opening to bring the contents to the bottom. Please reconstitute protein in deionized sterile water to a concentration of 0.1-1.0 mg/mL.We recommend to add 5-50% of glycerol (final concentration) and aliquot for long-term storage at -20?/-80?. Our default final concentration of glycerol is 50%. Customers could use it as reference.
