Blood coagulation can be initiated when factor VII or VIIa, a plasma protease, binds to its essential cofactor, tissue factor (TF), and proteolytically activates factors IX and X, triggering a cascade of events which eventually leads to the formation of thrombin and a fibrin clot. Plasma contains a lipoprotein-associated coagulation inhibitor (LACI) which(More)
Tissue factor pathway inhibitor (TFPI) is a multivalent Kunitz-type protease inhibitor that binds to and inactivates factor Xa directly, and in a factor Xa-dependent fashion inhibits the factor VIIa/tissue factor catalytic complex. TFPI is a slow, tight-binding, competitive, and reversible inhibitor of factor Xa, in which the formation of an initial(More)
Tissue factor pathway inhibitor (TFPI) is a multivalent Kunitz-type protease inhibitor, which inhibits factor Xa directly and in a factor Xa dependent manner inhibits the factor VIIa/tissue factor catalytic complex. Altered forms of recombinant TFPI (rTFPI) were tested for their ability to inhibit human factor Xa and bovine gamma-carboxyglutamate(More)
Lipoprotein-associated coagulation inhibitor (LACI) appears to inhibit tissue factor (TF)-induced blood coagulation by forming a quaternary inhibitory complex containing factor Xa, LACI, factor VIIa, and TF. A genetically engineered hybrid protein consisting of the light chain of factor Xa and the first Kunitz-type inhibitor domain of LACI is shown to(More)
Tissue factor pathway inhibitor (TFPI) is a multivalent Kunitz-type inhibitor that directly inhibits factor Xa and, in a factor Xa-dependent fashion, also inhibits the factor VIIa/tissue factor (TF) catalytic complex. The Kunitz-2 domain in TFPI is needed for the binding and inhibition of factor Xa, while the Kunitz-1 domain appears to be responsible for(More)
Lipoprotein-associated coagulation inhibitor (LACI) is a multivalent, Kunitz-type proteinase inhibitor which appears to play an important role in the regulation of hemostasis. LACI directly inhibits factor Xa, and, in a Xa-dependent fashion, also inhibits the factor VIIa-tissue factor catalytic complex. Hybridization of a LACI cDNA probe to DNA isolated(More)
Lipoprotein-associated coagulation inhibitor (LACI) inhibits activated Factor X (Xa) directly and, in an Xa-dependent fashion, inhibits Factor VIIa-tissue factor (TF), presumably by forming a quaternary Xa-LACI-VIIa-TF complex. LACI isolated from the conditioned media of HepG2 cells grown in the presence of [32P]orthophosphate was observed to be covalently(More)
