A simple waterfall sequence is proposed to explain the function of the various protein clotting factors during the formation of the fibrin clot. When clotting is initiated, each cloting factor except fibrinogen is converted to a form that has enzymatic activity. This activation occurs in a sepwise sequence with each newly formed enzyme reacting with its specific substrate, converting it to an active enzyme. 
Inhibition of normal clotting and Fletcher factor activity by rabbit anti-kallikrein antiserum
TLDR
Two nearly identical mechanisms, designated a waterfall1 and cascade2 respectively, were proposed to explain this process, and ideas about the clotting factors involved and the essential order of their participation have not changed. Expand

TLDR
The cascade and waterfall models of blood coagulation 1,2 and 2 explicitly recognized that tissue factor and factor VII markedly accelerated clotting, but neither model included a step in which the interaction of blood with damaged tissues was viewed as a stimulus for initiating coagulating. Expand
Sequence Theories of Blood Coagulation re-evaluated with reference to Lipid–Protein Interactions
TLDR
The validity of the assumptions involved in the assumption that a linear response in reaction velocity with changing concentration is indicative of an enzyme while a saturation response are indicative of a substrate is considered. Expand
arboxypeptidase U at the Interface Between Coagulation and Fibrinolysis
TLDR
In this study, carboxypeptidase U (CPU) circulates in plasma as an inactive zymogen, proCPU, that is converted to its active form during coagulation and fibrinolysis. Expand
Biophysical mechanisms of contact activation of blood-plasma clotting
This review considers the biochemical and biophysical mechanisms that trigger blood clotting upon contact of blood with an alien surface and leads via a cascade of enzymatic reactions to fibrinExpand
Formation of Prothrombin Converting Activity
TLDR
A model has been constructed for the kinetics of the formation of prothrombin converting activity and phospholipid provides a surface on to which coagulant factors bind. Expand

TLDR
Factor XII (FXII), a clotting enzyme that can initiate coagulation in vitro, has long been considered dispensable for normal blood clotting in vivo, but new studies show that mice lacking FXII are protected against arterial thrombosis and stroke. Expand

TLDR
Observations suggest that the fluidity of blood within blood vessels may be maintained by inhibitors directed against Hageman factor, and that the clot-promoting property of normal plasma deteriorated rapidly, apparently as the result of enzymatic destruction. Expand
