ENZYME entry: EC 3.4.21.6

Accepted Name
Coagulation factor Xa.
Alternative Name(s)
Prothrombase.
Prothrombinase.
Stuart factor.
Thrombokinase.
Reaction catalysed
Selective cleavage of Arg-|-Thr and then Arg-|-Ile bonds in prothrombin to form thrombin
Comment(s)
  • A blood coagulation factor formed from the proenzyme factor X by limited proteolysis.
  • Factor X is a glycoprotein composed of a heavy chain and a light chain, which are generated from a precursor protein by the excision of the tripeptide RKR and held together by one or more disulfide bonds.
  • The activated factor Xa converts prothrombin to thrombin in the presence of factor Va, Ca(2+) and phospholipids.
  • Scutelarin (EC 3.4.21.60) has similar specificity, but does not require factor Va.
  • Belongs to peptidase family S1.
