Tissue factor (TF) is a glycoprotein that initiates coagulation, regulates hemostasis and plays a critical role in arterial thrombosis. Vascular smooth muscle cells (SMC) are the major cellular component of the arterial wall. Under normal conditions, SMC express minimal levels of TF; however TF is rapidly induced in SMC by ...
