Summaries for F3 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for F3 Gene

  • This gene encodes coagulation factor III which is a cell surface glycoprotein. This factor enables cells to initiate the blood coagulation cascades, and it functions as the high-affinity receptor for the coagulation factor VII. The resulting complex provides a catalytic event that is responsible for initiation of the coagulation protease cascades by specific limited proteolysis. Unlike the other cofactors of these protease cascades, which circulate as nonfunctional precursors, this factor is a potent initiator that is fully functional when expressed on cell surfaces. There are 3 distinct domains of this factor: extracellular, transmembrane, and cytoplasmic. This protein is the only one in the coagulation pathway for which a congenital deficiency has not been described. Alternate splicing results in multiple transcript variants.[provided by RefSeq, May 2010]

GeneCards Summary for F3 Gene

F3 (Coagulation Factor III (Thromboplastin, Tissue Factor)) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with F3 include heparin-induced thrombocytopenia and carotid artery thrombosis. Among its related pathways are Hemostasis and Formation of Fibrin Clot (Clotting Cascade). GO annotations related to this gene include phospholipid binding and protease binding.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for F3 Gene

  • Initiates blood coagulation by forming a complex with circulating factor VII or VIIa. The [TF:VIIa] complex activates factors IX or X by specific limited protolysis. TF plays a role in normal hemostasis by initiating the cell-surface assembly and propagation of the coagulation protease cascade.

Function for F3 Gene

Molecular function for F3 Gene

GENATLAS Biochemistry:
coagulation factor III,single chain glycoprotein,44kDa,initiating blood coagulation by complexing with F7
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Function:
Initiates blood coagulation by forming a complex with circulating factor VII or VIIa. The [TF:VIIa] complex activates factors IX or X by specific limited protolysis. TF plays a role in normal hemostasis by initiating the cell-surface assembly and propagation of the coagulation protease cascade.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Induction:
TF expression is highly dependent upon cell type. TF can also be induced by the inflammatory mediators interleukin 1 and TNF-alpha, as well as by endotoxin, to appear on monocytes and vascular endothelial cells as a component of cellular immune response.
