Prothrombin G20210A, factor V Leiden, and factor XIII Val34Leu: common mutations of blood coagulation factors and deep vein thrombosis in Austria.

Abstract

Mutations in the gene for prothrombin (F2 20210A) and factor V (F5 1691A, factor V Leiden) are established risk factors for deep venous thrombosis (DVT). Recently, a mutation in the gene for factor XIII (F13 100T) leading to a Valine-Leucine exchange at amino acid position 34 has been reported to be protective against DVT. To analyze the role of these… (More)
