Adiponectin is further identified based on the molecular weight of these multimers as low (trimer), middle (hexameric), and high (higher order complexes) [10].
This leads to extensive release of vWF multimers which overwhelm ADAMST13 available for cleavage [13].

Another characteristic issue for PCOS is the difference in the adiponectin multimer ratio and concentrations, when compared to the control group.
To this end, we recently evaluated the immunogenicity of a "dual-type HPV 16/18 L2 fusion (DT) peptide" comprising the three head-to-tail tandem repeats (multimers) of HPV L2 RG-1 epitope "17-36 residues (17-36 x3)" in murine model with promising results [36].

In addition, Siebenlist and Mosesson [19] found inhibition of lysis by FXIIIa and claimed that resistance to fibrinolysis is not induced by [alpha] chain polymer formation or [gamma] chain dimer formation, but by [gamma] chain multimer formation.
These changes in the absorption bands illustrate that the -OH and -NH on a multimer differed from those on a monopolymer or even in a dissociative state, indicating that the states of -OH and -NH were affected by binding with Cd(II) and Hg(II).
Laboratory evaluation confirmed type 1 VWD with ristocetin cofactor activity of 38%, von Willebrand antigen level of 41%, factor VIII level of 60%, and a normal von Willebrand factor multimer distribution.

Multimer analysis is performed to evaluate the presence/absence of proteolytic fragments.
"Integration into a multimer or multiplex assay for simultaneous and differential detection of CHIKV Dengue virus, and Zika virus, as well as an internal positive control would improve outbreak investigations, since the three viruses induce the same clinical picture upon infection and increasingly cocirculate in many parts of the world."
