Characterization of the molecular defect in factor VR506Q.

A poor anticoagulant response of plasma to activated protein C is correlated with a single mutation in the factor V molecule (Arg506-->Gln). Factor V was purified to homogeneity from plasma of two unrelated patients (patient I, factor VI, and patient II, factor VII), who are homozygous for this mutation. The factor V molecule from both patients has normal… (More)
