factor v

<chemical> Heat- and storage-labile plasma glycoprotein which accelerates the conversion of prothrombin to thrombin in blood coagulation. Factor v accomplishes this by forming a complex with factor xa, phospholipid, and calcium (prothrombinase complex). Deficiency of factor v leads to owren's disease. ...

factor V

proaccelerin: a coagulation factor that is heat- and storage-labile, present in plasma but not in serum, and functions in both the intrinsic and extrinsic pathways of coagulation. It catalyzes the cleavage of prothrombin to the active thrombin. Deficiency of this factor, an autosomal recessive trait, leads to a rare hemorrhagic tende...

Factor V

Factor V (pronounced factor five) is a protein of the coagulation system, rarely referred to as proaccelerin or labile factor. In contrast to most other coagulation factors, it is not enzymatically active but functions as a cofactor. Deficiency leads to predisposition for hemorrhage, while some mutations (most notably factor V Leiden) predispose f...
