    Default Protein C

    Protein C is a plasma, vitamin κ-dependent zymogen of a serine protease that can inhibit blood coagulation by inhibiting thrombin formation, selectively inactivating Factors Va and VIIIa. The Protein C anticoagulant pathway is triggered when thrombin binds to the endothelial cell proteoglycan, thrombomodulin. This complex, which cannot clot blood, is a potent activator of the protein C zymogen. Activation involves the release of a dodecapeptide from the N-terminal domain of the heavy chain. The activated Protein C (APC) then binds to protein S on cell surfaces and inactivates the coagulation factors Va and VIIIa by proteolysis. APC has also been shown to bind to receptors on the endothelium of large blood vessels.

    Thank you very much for sharing, henrrymo! This was indeed very informative.
