Factor VIIa/tissue factor-catalyzed activation of factors IX and X on a cell surface and in suspension: a kinetic study.

The kinetics of activation of factor IX and factor X by factor VIIa was studied in the presence of various sources of tissue factor: (1) a surface membrane of human ovarian carcinoma cell line, OC-2008 (2) the cell lysate (of OC-2008) and (3) reconstituted purified human tissue factor. The rates of activation of factors IX and X were monitored in activation… CONTINUE READING
