Gene Information

This gene encodes coagulation factor VIII which participates in the intrinsic pathway of blood coagulation; factor VIII is a cofactor for factor IXa which in the presence of Ca+2 and phospholipids converts factor X to the activated form Xa. This gene produces two alternatively spliced transcripts. Transcript variant 1 encodes a large glycoprotein isoform a which circulates in plasma and associates with von Willebrand factor in a noncovalent complex. This protein undergoes multiple cleavage events. 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. Defects in this gene results in hemophilia A a common recessive X-linked coagulation disorder. [provided by RefSeq Jul 2008]
