Action and function of coagulation factor Xa on cellular signaling

01 April 2009

PhD ceremony: mw. K. Borensztajn, 16.15 uur, Academiegebouw, Broerstraat 5, Groningen

Thesis: Action and function of coagulation factor Xa on cellular signaling

Promotor(s): prof. M.P. Peppelenbosch, prof. S. Arseien

Faculty: Medical Sciences


It has become clear that vitamin K-dependent coagulation factors in general and factor Xa in particular are principal players in pathophysiology. Hence understanding its biology better as well as its role in pathophysiology may provide exiting insights in both the understanding of human and animal physiology in general and provide clues to improved therapy in particular. This general line of thinking has been the guiding line for this thesis.
