Abstract

Pools of factor XIII (FXIII) exist in the plasma and within the cytoplasm of hematopoietic cells, including platelets. The functions of the cellular form, FXIII-A, have been assumed to be intracellular in nature, as the protein lacks a signal sequence for its release. Mounting evidence now suggests that platelet FXIII-A modulates hemostasis by several different mechanisms. In this condensed review we discuss recent advances in our understanding of the novel intracellular and extracellular functions of platelet FXIII-A.
