  • Function
    Thrombin inhibitor activated by the glycosaminoglycans, heparin or dermatan sulfate. In the presence of the latter, HC-II becomes the predominant thrombin inhibitor in place of antithrombin III (AT-III). Also inhibits chymotrypsin, but in a glycosaminoglycan-independent manner.
    Peptides at the N-terminal of HC-II have chemotactic activity for both monocytes and neutrophils.
  • Tissue specificity
    Expressed predominantly in liver. Also present in plasma.
  • Involvement in disease
    Thrombophilia due to heparin cofactor 2 deficiency
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the serpin family.
  • Domain
    The N-terminal acidic repeat region mediates, in part, the glycosaminoglycan-accelerated thrombin inhibition.
  • Post-translational
    modifications
    Phosphorylation sites are present in the extracellular medium.
  • Information by UniProt
