Western blot analysis of F2 over-expressed 293 cell line, cotransfected with F2 Validated Chimera RNAi ( Cat # H00002147-R01V ) (Lane 2) or non-transfected control (Lane 1). Blot probed with F2 monoclonal antibody (M01), clone 1B7 (Cat # H00002147-M01 ). GAPDH ( 36.1 kDa ) used as specificity and loading control.
Coagulation factor II is proteolytically cleaved to form thrombin in the first step of the coagulation cascade which ultimately results in the stemming of blood loss. F2 also plays a role in maintaining vascular integrity during development and postnatal life. Mutations in F2 leads to various forms of thrombosis and dysprothrombinemia. [provided by RefSeq
