thrombomodulin

Specific endothelial cell receptor (100 kD: luminal surface only) that forms a 1:1 complex with thrombin. This complex then converts protein C to Ca, that in turn acts on Factors Va and VIIIa. Structurally similar to coated pit receptors.

Thrombomodulin

Thrombomodulin (TM), CD141 or BDCA-3 is an integral membrane protein expressed on the surface of endothelial cells and serves as a cofactor for thrombin. It reduces blood coagulation by converting thrombin to an anticoagulant enzyme from a procoagulant enzyme. Thrombomodulin is also expressed on human mesothelial cell, monocyte and a dendritic cel...
