Background

Platelet factor 4 (PF4) is a small cytokine belonging to the CXC chemokine family that is also known as chemokine (C-X-C motif) ligand 4 (CXCL4). This chemokine is released from alpha-granules of activated platelets during platelet aggregation, and promotes blood coagulation by moderating the effects of heparin-like molecules. Due to these roles, it is predicted to play a role in wound repair and inflammation.1 PF4 is usually found in a complex with proteoglycan. PF4 is chemotactic for neutrophils, fibroblasts and monocytes, and interacts with a splice variant of the chemokine receptor CXCR3, known as CXCR3B.2
Platelet factor-4 is released from the alpha-granules of activated platelets and binds with high affinity to heparin. Its major physiologic role appears to be neutralization of heparin-like molecules on the endothelial surface of blood vessels, thereby inhibiting local antithrombin III activity and promoting coagulation. As a strong chemoattractant for neutrophils and fibroblasts, PF4 probably has a role in inflammation and wound repair.3 PF4 is the antigen in heparin-induced thrombocytopenia, an idiosyncratic autoimmune reaction to the administration of the anticoagulant heparin.4

Protein Details

Purity
>97% by SDS-PAGE and analyzed by silver stain.
Endotoxin Level
<0.01EU/µg as determined by the LAL method
Biological Activity
The biological activity of Human PF-4 was determined by its ability to inhibit human FGF-basic-dependent proliferation of NR6R-3T3 fibroblasts (Rizzino, A., et al., 1988, Cancer Res. 48:4266; Thomas, K. et al., 1987, Methods Enzymol. 147:120; Watson, J.B. et al., 1994, J. Clin. Invest. 94:261). The expected ED50 for this effect is typically 5 - 15 μg/ml.
