Blood coagulation is an essential element in maintaining homeostasis, in particular, helping the formation of blood clots. The blood coagulation system is composed of platelets, a large number of proteases and protease inhibitors, and cofactors. Due to the complexity of blood coagulation system, these proteases are mechanistically and functionally subdivided into procoagulant, anticoagulant, fibrinolytic, or antifibrinolytic proteases. Proteases along with their respective cofactors of the blood coagulation system could act as specialized effectors and/or modulators during vascular injury, they work in concert with each other with varying ratios of one protease to other coagulation proteases and in conjunction with the complement and immune systems, as well as vascular endothelium to control blood loss, the growth of clots, vascular repair, and maintenance.
