Coagulation factor XIII, A1 polypeptide

The coagulation factor XIII is heterotetramer composed of 2 A subunits and 2 B subunits. The F13A1 gene encodes the A subunit. The function of factor XIII is to stabilize the fibrin clot. Mutations cause autosomal recessive factor XIII deficiency, a bleeding disorder that shows defective wound healing.
