    basic FUNCTION
  • initiating blood coagulation by complexing with FVII or FVIIa
  • participate in hemostatic and inflammatory processes
  • plays a role in normal hemostasis by initiating
  • the cell-surface assembly and propagation of the coagulation protease cascade
  • prime initiator of blood coagulation playing a critical role in thrombosis and hemostasis
  • has an important role in the initiation of coagulation and in the increase in thrombin activity at the site of inflammation (Isada 2010)
  • protect cardiomyocytes against TNF-induced apoptosis via activation of specific signaling pathways, and up-regulation of anti-apoptotic members of the BCL2 protein family
  • functional, procoagulant F3 is required for the generation of thrombin, which in turn activates F2R to promote phosphorylation of the cytoplasmic domain of F3 in enterocytes
  • F3-induced endothelial cell (EC) CCL2 release contributes to neovessel formation
  • in endothelial cell, F3 forms a complex with AKT1 activating RAF1/ERK and ETS1 signaling induces microvessel formation
  • membrane surface F3 mediates airway epithelial basal cell attachment, which maintains cell survival and mitotic potential
  • F3 is chaperoned by PDIA2 to the coronary smooth muscle cells (HVSMC) membrane and to the cell migratory front
    PHYSIOLOGICAL PROCESS coagulation/hemostasis
    text component of cellular immune response
    a component
    small molecule
  • F7 binding
  • procoagulant role of PROC pathway may have important implications for the regulation of F3- and TFPI-dependent biologic responses and for fine tuning of the hemostatic balance in the vascular system
  • F3 regulates CCL2 production in endothelial cells, and mediates the angiogenic effect of F3 by recruiting smooth muscle cells toward endothelial cells and facilitates the maturation of newly formed microvessels
  • BMP2 as a novel inhibitor of F3 expression in lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-activated human monocytes
  • mediates signalling through coagulation proteases that activate the G-protein-coupled receptors F2R and F2RL1
  • binding to its ligand F7 induces activation of F2RL1 and this event is thought to considerably influence atherosclerosis and tumor angiogenesis
  • participates in protease-activated receptor F2R and F2RL1 activation
  • inverse expression pattern of CDKN1B and F3, but also a direct regulatory link between the two proteins
  • ER-stress protein-disulphide isomerase family A member 2 (PDIA2) regulates tissue factor (F3)
  • TICAM1 regulated foam cell formation via regulation of the expression levels of CCL2, F3, OLR1
