  • Function
    Factor IX is a vitamin K-dependent plasma protein that participates in the intrinsic pathway of blood coagulation by converting factor X to its active form in the presence of Ca(2+) ions, phospholipids, and factor VIIIa.
  • Tissue specificity
    Synthesized primarily in the liver and secreted in plasma.
  • Involvement in disease
    Defects in F9 are the cause of recessive X-linked hemophilia B (HEMB) [MIM:306900]; also known as Christmas disease.
    Note=Mutations in position 43 (Oxford-3, San Dimas) and 46 (Cambridge) prevents cleavage of the propeptide, mutation in position 93 (Alabama) probably fails to bind to cell membranes, mutation in position 191 (Chapel-Hill) or in position 226 (Nagoya OR Hilo) prevent cleavage of the activation peptide.
    Defects in F9 are the cause of thrombophilia due to factor IX defect (THR-FIX) [MIM:300807]. A hemostatic disorder characterized by a tendency to thrombosis.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the peptidase S1 family.
    Contains 2 EGF-like domains.
    Contains 1 Gla (gamma-carboxy-glutamate) domain.
    Contains 1 peptidase S1 domain.
  • Domain
    Calcium binds to the gamma-carboxyglutamic acid (Gla) residues and, with stronger affinity, to another site, beyond the Gla domain.
  • Post-translational
    modifications
    Activated by factor XIa, which excises the activation peptide.
    The iron and 2-oxoglutarate dependent 3-hydroxylation of aspartate and asparagine is (R) stereospecific within EGF domains.
  • Cellular localization
    Secreted.
  • Information by UniProt
