Tissue factor activity of cultured human vascular cells

  • James R. Maynard
Part of the Developments in Cardiovascular Medicine book series (DICM, volume 27)


Blood coagulation can be initiated by either the intrinsic or extrinsic coagulation pathways. Both pathways involve the sequential activation of proenzymes which circulate in plasma. The initial event in both pathways is the interaction of specific proteolytic zymogens with noncirculating constituents of the blood vessel wall.
