The protein encoded by this gene is the alpha component of fibrinogen a blood-borne glycoprotein comprised of three pairs of nonidentical polypeptide chains. Following vascular injury fibrinogen is cleaved by thrombin to form fibrin which is the most abundant component of blood clots. In addition various cleavage products of fibrinogen and fibrin regulate cell adhesion and spreading display vasoconstrictor and chemotactic activities and are mitogens for several cell types. Mutations in this gene lead to several disorders including dysfibrinogenemia hypofibrinogenemia afibrinogenemia and renal amyloidosis. Alternative splicing results in two isoforms which vary in the carboxy-terminus. [provided by RefSeq Jul 2008]
