Fibrinogen is a soluble glycoprotein that circulates in the blood and is converted to insoluble fibrin by thrombin in the final step of the coagulation cascade. Hepatic expression of fibrinogen increases two to four hundred fold during the acute phase response to infection or inflammation. Elevated fibrinogen levels are correlated with cardiovascular disease and atherosclerosis. The sensitive quantitative measurement of total mouse fibrinogen antigen in plasma and serum samples is easily performed with this 96 well strip format ELISA kit. The concentration of fibrinogen in normal mouse plasma ranges from 1.4-2.1 mg/ml and varies by strain and diet. The assay measures total mouse fibrinogen in the 3.125-800 ng/ml range. Samples giving mouse fibrinogen levels above 800 ng/ml should be diluted in 1X diluent before use. A 1:100,000 to 1:1,000,000 dilution for plasma or serum is suggested for best results.
