Activity statushuman: active (Morrissey, 2004)
mouse: active (Rosen et al., 1997)
PhysiologyProteolytically activates coagulation factors IX and X.
KnockoutThe effects of the human inherited factor VII deficiency have been reviewed by Tuddenhamet al. (1995). Mice lacking factor VII develop normally but suffer fatal perinatal bleeding (Rosen et al., 1997).
Pharmaceutical relevanceFactor VIIa initiates the extrinsic coagulation cascade, and its central role in hemostasis and thrombosis makes it a key target of pharmaceutical research (Sichler et al., 2002). In liver transplantation, recombinant factor VIIa seemed to enhance thrombin generation without causing systemic coagulation (Meijer et al., 2003).
