  • secreted
  • basic FUNCTION
  • cleaved prothrombin in thrombin
  • role in fetal loss and liver diseases
  • may play a role in physiologic lymphocytes functions at mucosal sites
  • plays a vital role in the pathogenesis of some critical inflammatory diseases by processing immunomodulatory activity
  • plays an important role in macrophage activation in the lungs of COPD patients through MAPK pathway modulation (Liu 2010)
  • contributes to the hypercoagulability in cancer and may induce tumor angiogenesis and metastasis via cytokine induction (Su 2008)
