The lectin complement pathway serine proteases (MASPs) represent a possible crossroad between the coagulation and complement systems in thromboinflammation.

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The activated forms of the complement lectin pathway (LP) proteases MASP-1 and -2 are able to cleave the coagulation factors prothrombin, fibrinogen, factor XIII and TAFI in vitro. In vivo studies also show that MASP-1 is involved in thrombogenesis, OBJECTIVES: To clarify the not yet identified mechanisms involved in triggering activation of the LP during thrombotic reactions.
