HEMOSTASIS, THROMBOSIS, AND VASCULAR BIOLOGY A haplotype of the EPCR gene is associated with increased plasma levels of sEPCR and is a candidate risk factor for thrombosis


The endothelial cell protein C (PC) receptor (EPCR) facilitates PC activation by the thrombin-thrombomodulin complex. A soluble form of this receptor (sEPCR) found in plasma inhibits both activated PC (aPC) activity and PC activation by competing for PC with membrane-associated EPCR. Elevated sEPCR levels are found in approximately 20% of healthy subjects… (More)
