• plasma
  • alpha-2-Macroglobulin is known to bind zinc, as well as copper in plasma, even more strongly than albumin, and such it is also known as transcuprein. (wikipedia.org)
  • 10-15% of copper in human plasma is chelated by alpha-2-macroglobulin. (wikipedia.org)
  • The ELT measures fibrinolysis by clotting the euglobulin fraction (primarily the important fibrinolytic factors fibrinogen, PAI-1, tPA, alpha 2-antiplasmin, and plasminogen) from plasma and then observing the time required for clot dissolution. (wikipedia.org)
  • disease
  • Nevertheless, excess levels of PAI and alpha 2-antiplasmin have been implicated in the metabolic syndrome and various other disease states. (wikipedia.org)
  • domain
  • The cytoplasmic domain of LRP1 is the alpha-chain, which comprises four ligand-binding domains (numbered I-IV) containing two, eight, ten, and eleven cysteine-rich complement-type repeats, respectively. (wikipedia.org)
