- Coagulation factor II
- Coagulation factor II thrombin
- EC 188.8.131.52
FunctionThrombin, which cleaves bonds after Arg and Lys, converts fibrinogen to fibrin and activates factors V, VII, VIII, XIII, and, in complex with thrombomodulin, protein C. Functions in blood homeostasis, inflammation and wound healing.
Tissue specificityExpressed by the liver and secreted in plasma.
Involvement in diseaseFactor II deficiency
Thrombophilia due to thrombin defect
Pregnancy loss, recurrent, 2
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the peptidase S1 family.
Contains 1 Gla (gamma-carboxy-glutamate) domain.
Contains 2 kringle domains.
Contains 1 peptidase S1 domain.
modificationsThe gamma-carboxyglutamyl residues, which bind calcium ions, result from the carboxylation of glutamyl residues by a microsomal enzyme, the vitamin K-dependent carboxylase. The modified residues are necessary for the calcium-dependent interaction with a negatively charged phospholipid surface, which is essential for the conversion of prothrombin to thrombin.
N-glycosylated. N-glycan heterogeneity at Asn-121: Hex3HexNAc3 (minor), Hex4HexNAc3 (minor) and Hex5HexNAc4 (major). At Asn-143: Hex4HexNAc3 (minor) and Hex5HexNAc4 (major).
Cellular localizationSecreted, extracellular space.
