Factor XIIIa expression in granulomatous lesions due to sarcoidosis or mycobacterial infection.

Abstract

The a-subunit of the clotting factor XIII (FXIIIa) has previously been shown to be synthesized by cells of monocyte lineage such as macrophages and histiocytes. Thus, besides clot retraction, a possible role of FXIIIa has also been postulated in inflammation. In order to test this hypothesis, FXIIIa-expression in granulomatous lesions due to sarcoidosis and… (More)
