Is there any thrombin in NEBs factor Xa preparation?
We cannot detect any thrombin in our prep, but our level of sensitivity is not exquisite – we look on an overloaded gel, so we probably would see anything over 1%. The activity of factor Xa on thrombin substrates masks any signal in a proteolytic assay for thrombin (both enzymes cleave after arginine).
*Sadly, we had to bring back ads too. Hopefully more targeted.
