F3 Initiates blood coagulation by forming a complex with circulating factor VII or VIIa. The [TF:VIIa] complex activates factors IX or X by specific limited protolysis. TF plays a role in normal hemostasis by initiating the cell-surface assembly and propagation of the coagulation protease cascade. Belongs to the tissue factor family. Lung, placenta and pancreas. 2 alternatively spliced human isoforms have been reported. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
