Introduction: The biochemical investigation of a biological process can be divided into three segments. The first is the development of an inventory of the components involved in the process, the second is the establishment of the connectivity between components, and the third is the establishment of the dynamics of the processes as they occur in the living organism. 
Biochemie und Physiologie der Blutgerinnung und Fibrinolyse
The principles of initiator and amplification reactions of blood coagulation and fibrinolysis will be presented and discussed in relation to various regulatory pathways of haemostasis. In particular,Expand
Blood Clotting: General Pathway
TLDR
The role of vitamin K in haemostasis, and its role in bleeding disorders, is poorly understood but its use in anticoagulant therapy is known. Expand
Imaging methods for haemostasis research
Blood is a vital part of the human physiology; a transport system that brings nutrients and oxygen to sustain living cells and simultaneously facilitates the removal of carbon dioxide and other wasExpand
Simulation of a mathematical model of the role of the TFPI in the extrinsic pathway of coagulation
TLDR
A new concept of blood coagulation system is provided and a dynamic model to describe the role of TFPI of this pathway is provided through stability analysis of the equilibrium point and numerical simulations. Expand
Chapter 36 Disorders of the blood coagulation-fibrinolytic system
Most human cells have no direct contact with the external environment and their living conditions are ensured by blood. An essential criterion for normal blood circulation is the ability of the bloodExpand
Models for reaction mechanisms in haemostasis--contributions from the study of prothrombin activation.

  • 2007
TLDR
A link between the "classical theory" of hemostasis and the conceptual development of activation complexes as the activators of the precursors of coagulation proteases is developed. Expand
Thrombin as a Regulator of Inflammation and Reparative Processes in Tissues
TLDR
Mechanisms of regulatory effects of thrombin on mast cells associated with nitric oxide release are discussed and functions involved in its interaction with PAR family receptors, activation of platelets, endothelial cells, leukocytes, smooth muscle cells, and mast cells are reviewed. Expand
ES04.01 
Physiology of haemostasis
TLDR
The way the system works in the light of the circumstances in which it can go wrong is considered, concentrating on an explanation of how various defects, demonstrable in the laboratory, have such strikingly different clinical consequences. Expand
The kinetic model and simulation of blood coagulation--the kinetic influence of activated protein C.
TLDR
An interesting outcome is that kinetic reaction rates may show oscillation behavior under particular, high levels of protein C feedback inhibition, which would defy quantitative practical use, but could have predictive value as a qualitative descriptor of coagulation. Expand
The Role of Coagulation in Arterial and Venous Thrombosis
The coagulation cascade is integral to the hemostatic process and serves to limit the amount of blood loss during trauma. However, derangements in this process can result in venous thrombosis andExpand

TLDR
The data presented here suggest that deficiencics in protein S, thrombomodulin, or the platelet receptor for activated protein C might also result in a thromBotic tendency. Expand
AN ENZYME CASCADE IN THE BLOOD CLOTTING MECHANISM, AND ITS FUNCTION AS A BIOCHEMICAL AMPLIFIER
AFTER years of confusion, it seems that a relatively simple pattern is emerging from present theories of blood coagulation. Its recognition is assisted by the Roman numeral terminology of theExpand
An Enzyme Cascade in the Blood Clotting Mechanism, and its Function as a Biochemical Amplifier
TLDR
It has been shown that contact activates Factor XII (Hageman factor) perhaps by unfolding its molecule, which leads successively to the activation of Factors XI (PTA) and IX (Christmas factor), and X (Stuart–Prower factor), the evidence suggesting that all these reactions are enzymatic. Expand
Surface-dependent reactions of the vitamin K-dependent enzyme complexes.
TLDR
It is concluded that factor VII is most likely a zymogen, just as are the other proenzymes of the blood clotting process, and the kinetic constants obtained for the various coagulation reactions determined in vitro provide some insights into how these pathways may function in vivo. Expand
Waterfall Sequence for Intrinsic Blood Clotting
A simple waterfall sequence is proposed to explain the function of the various protein clotting factors during the formation of the fibrin clot. When clotting is initiated, each cloting factor exceptExpand

A mathematical simulation of the tissue factor pathway to the generation of thrombin has been developed using a combination of empirical, estimated, and deduced rate constants for reactions involvingExpand

TLDR
The findings indicate that in hemophilia there is a deficiency in a plasma factor required for platelet utilization, and it is suggested that this factor is a thrombocytolysin. Expand
Plasma Throinboplastin Component (PTC) Deficiency
TLDR
A severe hemorrhagic disease, characterized by a prolonged whole blood coagulated time due to the delayed formation of thrombin, has been described and the name plasma thromboplastin component (PTC) has been assigned to this previously undescribed coagulation factor. Expand

TLDR
It is proposed that the surface of vascular endothelium provides a cofactor that enhances the rate of protein C activation by thrombin, and the activation rate is inhibited by including diisopropylphospho-thrombin in the medium. Expand
The evaluation of complex-dependent alterations in human factor VIIa.
TLDR
Measurements conducted using various phospholipids and detergents demonstrated that the increase in catalytic efficiency of factor VIIa, when complexed to tissue factor, is independent of the supporting surface. Expand
