Despite significant progress in elucidating the biochemistry of the hemostatic mechanism, the process of blood coagulation in vivo remains poorly understood. Factor IX is a vitamin K-dependent glycoprotein that can be activated by factor XIa or the factor VII-tissue factor complex in vitro. To investigate the role of these two pathways in factor IX activation in humans, we have developed a sensitive procedure for quantifying the peptide that is liberated with the generation of factor IXa.
