Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. High-molecular-weight kininogen (HMWK or HK), also known as the Williams-Fitzgerald-Flaujeac factor or the Fitzgerald factor or the HMWK-kallikrein factor, is a protein from the blood coagulation system as well as the kinin-kallikrein system. It is a protein that adsorbs to the surface of biomaterials that come in contact with blood in vivo. This protein circulates throughout the blood and quickly adsorbs to the material surfaces.High-molecular weight kininogen is one of the kininogens, a class of proteins. As with many other coagulation proteins, the protein was initially named after the patients in whom deficiency was first observed. When the clinical data were combined, it turned out that all patients, in fact, had a deficiency of the same protein.show more
