Tissue factor pathway inhibitor (TFPI) is a factor Xa dependent inhibitor of tissue factor initiated blood coagulation. In recent years several alternatively spliced forms of TFPI have been identified. These alternatively spliced forms have different C-terminal regions and have different mechanisms for association with cell surfaces. They are differentially expressed in human and mouse tissues and may have distinct physiological functions.
