Previously called antithrombin III (abbreviated ATIII), human antithrombin is one of the major physiological inhibitors of coagulation.
A natural serine protease inhibitor, antithrombin acts mainly on thrombin (IIa) and activated Factor X (FXa), as well as on activated forms of factors IX, XI and XII.
This reaction is catalyzed by heparin. The normal level of antithrombin is between 80 and 120% in adults and it is about half in newborns.
Antithrombin deficiency predisposes to thrombosis.
