  • Official Full Name

    coagulation factor VIII, procoagulant component

  • Overview

    Factor VIII (FVIII) is an essential blood-clotting protein, also known as anti-hemophilic factor (AHF). In humans, factor VIII is encoded by the F8 gene. Defects in this gene results in hemophilia A, a recessive X-linked coagulation disorder. Factor VIII is produced in liver sinusoidal cells and endothelial cells outside of the liver throughout the body. This protein circulates in the bloodstream in an inactive form, bound to another molecule called von Willebrand factor, until an injury that damages blood vessels occurs. In response to injury, coagulation factor VIII is activated and separates from von Willebrand factor. The active protein (sometimes written as coagulation factor VIIIa) interacts with another coagulation factor called factor IX. This interaction sets off a chain of additional chemical reactions that form a blood clot.

What is F8 protein?

F8 (coagulation factor VIII) is a protein coding gene which situated on the long arm of chromosome X at locus Xq28. Transcript variant 2 encodes a putative small protein, isoform b, which consists primarily of the phospholipid binding domain of factor VIIIc. This binding domain is essential for coagulant activity. F8 protein also known as factor VIII, contains the signal peptide at the N-terminal and the enzyme activity center at the C-terminal. The F8 protein is a giant protein found in the human body, consisted of 2351 amino acids and its molecular mass is approximately 267 kDa.

What is the function of F8 protein?

The function of the F8 protein, also known as coagulation factor VIII, is to play a critical role in the blood clotting process. It is a crucial factor in the intrinsic pathway of the clotting cascade. Specifically, F8 protein acts as a cofactor for the enzyme activated factor IX (FIXa) in the conversion of factor X (FX) to activated factor X (FXa). This conversion is essential for the subsequent formation of thrombin, which ultimately leads to the formation of a stable blood clot.

F8 related Signaling pathways

The main signaling pathway involving F8 is the intrinsic pathway of the coagulation cascade. This pathway is initiated when blood vessels are damaged, and it involves a series of enzymatic reactions that ultimately lead to the activation of factor X and the conversion of prothrombin to thrombin.

F8 Related Diseases

Defects in this gene results in hemophilia A, a common recessive X-linked coagulation disorder. According to the report, a large number of different mutations of the F8 gene have been found so far, including point mutations, gene deletion, insertion, nonsense mutations, splicing mutations, etc. These mutations often lead to the development of hemophilia A or B. Additionally, factor VIII is regulated by several other proteins and pathways, including von Willebrand factor (VWF). Patients with von Willebrand disease (VWD) with VWF severely low or VWD Type 2N (VWD2N), a VWD subtype distinguished by defective VWF binding to F8, may have reduced F8 levels secondary to their VWD.

Bioapplications of F8

In hemophilia studies using AAV (adeno-associated virus) for treatment, it has been found that AAV vectors carrying F8 or F9 genes can produce functional FIX or F8 proteins under the control of liver promoters. Or using gene-editing technology to repair mutations in the F8 gene could also treat hemophilia A.
