Description

Protein C is a serine protease with potent anticoagulant effects, especially in the presence of its cofactor protein S. Protein C exerts its effect by the inactivation of the activated forms of factors V and VIII which leads to a decrease in thrombin formation. Protein C has also been shown to have profibrinolytic effects.
