Factor VIII
Structural Formula Vector Image
Title: Factor VIII
CAS Registry Number: 9001-27-8
CAS Name: Blood-coagulation factor VIII
Additional Names: antihemophilic globulin; antihemophilic factor A; AHG; AHF
Trademarks: Alphanate (Alpha Ther.); Hemofil-M (Baxter); Humate-P (Centeon); Koate-HP (Bayer); Monoclate-P (Centeon); Nordiocto (Nordisk); Profilate (Alpha Ther.)
Literature References: Crucial, nonenzymatic cofactor in the intrinsic coagulation pathway leading to the localized generation of thrombin. Deficiency results in the bleeding disorder known as hemophilia A or classical hemophilia. Factor VIII is an X-linked gene product synthesized by hepatocytes. Mature, single chain protein contains 2332 amino acid residues; mol wt 265 kDa. Released into the circulation as a set of heterodimers that rapidly interact with von Willebrand factor to form a stable, noncovalent complex; present at extremely low concn in plasma. Converted by thrombin into a heterotrimer (factor VIIIa) that accelerates the activation of factor X by factor IXa. Inactivated by protein C. Identification in plasma: T. Addis, J. Pathol.
