Example text

Individuals who are heterozygotes for these deficiencies have been traditionally considered to be at high risk of developing DIC without an underlying disorder. Cases linking these defects with DIC and neonatal purpura fulminans have are well documented in the literature [76-78]. Protein C is a glycoprotein which circulates in plasma in an inactive form. It‘s a vitamin K dependent factor which also requires the presence of protein S and anionic phospholipids for its activity [77]. Protein C gets converted into its active form [APC] by the action of thrombin-thrombomodulin complex.

Thrombomodulin (TM) is a membrane-bound glycoprotein initially identified on vascular endothelium [9], and later on leucocytes, smooth muscle cell, platelet, and cardiomyocyte [10, 11]. TM is also expressed in some cancer cells and influences cancer growth and metastasis [12, 13]. TM protein has 557 amino acids, and its structure consists of 5 domains including a highly charged N-terminal lectin-like domain (D1), a domain with six epidermal growth factor (EGF)-like structures (D2), a serine and threonine-rich domain (D3), a transmembrane domain (D4) and a cytoplasmic domain (D5) [14].
