Coagulation factor XIII, B polypeptide

The coagulation factor XIII is heterotetramer composed of 2 A subunits and 2 B subunits. The F13B gene encodes the B 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.
