TFPI [ENSP00000233156]

Tissue factor pathway inhibitor (lipoprotein-associated coagulation inhibitor); Inhibits factor X (X(a)) directly and, in a Xa-dependent way, inhibits VIIa/tissue factor activity, presumably by forming a quaternary Xa/LACI/VIIa/TF complex. It possesses an antithrombotic action and also the ability to associate with lipoproteins in plasma.
