It has been proposed that alternatively-spliced human tissue factor (asHTF) is pro-coagulant.We have evaluated the function of asHTF in a mammalian expression system.Full-length human tissue factor (HTF) and asHTF were cloned from smooth muscle cells and over-expressed in HEK293 cells. As expected, a marked pro-coagulant activity (FX activation, thrombin generation) was observed on the surface, in lysates, and on microparticles from HTF transfected cells. In contrast, no pro-coagulant activity of asHTF was observed.
